Our mission at 701x® is to empower the beef cattle industry with unprecedented data, tracking solutions, automation, and secure digital records. Through extensive market research we found a need for more technology within the agriculture space specific for beef cattle ranchers. At 701x, we’re invested in building the future of ranching, and we want to make life for ranchers as easy as possible. Giving ranchers full control of their operation is our goal, and we do our best to make every 701x herd as productive as possible. To that end, we’ve developed an innovative cattle management system. Our cattle management system encompasses a software solution and data collection devices. With our products, beef cattle producers are empowered to make better-informed management decisions backed by data.
Chris and Teresa are two shepherds and fiber experts who joined their fiber arts businesses, purchased a 100-year-old abandoned school building and restored it into a world class retreat center and boutique hotel called Nome Schoolhouse. They look forward to sharing their love of fiber arts, industry, and agriculture through their for-profit businesses, the Nome Schoolhouse and Shepherds Industries as well as through their non-profit educational side, the Nome Eweniversity. They connect shepherds, fiber, fiber arts enthusiasts, and fiber artists and makers through direct educational offerings while preserving a historic building and growing rural community. Nome Schoolhouse is a Boutique Hotel, Retreat Center, Event Center, Fiber Processing Mill, Online Business, Needle Felting Kits & Instructions, and Fiber Art, Agriculture, and Industry Education.
