Teton County, located on the Rocky Mountain Front, forms the seam between the wild lands and wilderness of the Lewis and Clark National Forest and the foothills and plains domesticated by area ranchers and farmers.
Teton County is made up of small communities, sparsely populated, linked by miles of country roads and highways that are dedicated to maintaining the special quality of life that makes living here so worthwhile. Teton County is a slice out of America's heartland and, in some ways, is a slice out of this country's past. Crime rates are low; violent crime is almost non-existent. We still enjoy old-fashioned pleasures like community dances, family picnics and going for a drive in the country.
Our culture and traditions are steeped in the fertile soil; we raise wheat, barley, and livestock as our top marketable products. Our seasons include calving, lambing, haying, seeding, harvesting and, during the fall, shipping. When you see cowboys moving their cattle along a roadway, you can bet they live on a ranch in the area and they probably learned to ride shortly after they learned to walk.
