    With the majority of the employment in this area being dairy farms, the job outlook is just okay. There are a few small businesses, restaurants, gas stations, grocery store in the area that also employ people, but there are not that many of those jobs.
    Review Beaver
    Fairly good environment, most people are smoosers.
    Our area is mostly rural. But we do have scom convienence stores and a grocery store. They are all great to deal with.
