About the Gentleman

My name is Jeff and I live in Central Texas.  I grew up in a small town in South Texas and lived on a ranch in my teens.  I wanted to be a veterinarian or ranch manager but wound up working in technology and now own a couple technology businesses – go figure.

But, my heart is still in the land, plants and animals.

I’ll be happy to spend the rest of my life learning and testing myself as I discover more about our world, how it works and how we can enjoy it now and make it better for the future.

What’s a Gentleman Farmer?  For purposes here, consider that a Gentleman Farmer is a person with a passion and curiosity for all things farming but also with the wisdom to know that his farming adventures are a hobby, not a job or source of income. This frees me up to make more mistakes and learn more without endangering the mortgage or shoes for the babies.

I’m particularly passionate about several subjects and have pulled together a number of previous websites under the heading of Gentleman Farmer. If this site appears a bit random, that’s why.  My daughter’s say I’m sorta random anyway. They say it beats being “basic”.


Thanks for visiting.
