Moving to Kansas
In 1806 an expedition of one of the first American explorer Zebulon Pike passed through the prairies of Kansas heading to the roots of the Arkansas River. On the map which Pike had during his travels he wrote remarks such as "no piece of wood" and "countless herds of buffalo".
If you come to Kansas you will see that things have changed since then. At the beginning of the 20th century Kansas became one of the leading agricultural states in the USA. That’s why the state got the nickname "State of sunflowers and wheat".
If you plan on moving to KS to become a farmer you will be glad to hear that the state ranks third for agricultural land area in the US. What exactly will you be able to grow when you complete your relocation to KS? Primarily it’s wheat and corn. Most applications for wholesale supply of these come directly to Kansas. In addition, the state's fields are also cultivated with oats, barley, sorghum, sunflowers, soybean and other crops but production of these is relatively minor by comparison. Your relocation to Kansas for farming is not limited to agriculture as there is a large industry for the production of cattle, pigs and sheep or processing meat and milk.
In recent decades people have moved to KS to work not only in agriculture but also produce and process minerals. Kansas is one of ten US states in terms of crude oil and natural gas reserves. Kansas also has a thriving mining industry for the production of rock salt, gypsum, sand, gravel and other minerals used in construction. Since the Second World War Kansas is also one of the largest aircraft manufacturing centers in the United States.
One thing you won’t see coming to KS – mountains or cliffs. This state is very flat. According to some estimates it is the flattest state of America. Nevertheless, tourists love the beautiful views and open skies of Kansas and anglers come here to relax in the company of friends or enjoy the peace of the rivers. Before moving to Kansas please bear in mind that this state is in tornado alley, so you always need to be vigilant, take care and be prepared.
An interesting fact about Kansas: It was here in the town of Coffeyville that the largest every hailstone was recorded with a weight of about 700 grams!
