Jefferson is a small, progressive town of 4,500 located in Central Iowa. It offers all the amenities that one would expect of a county seat, including a diverse set of stores, restaurants, parks and recreation facilities. It is also less than an hour from Ames (the home of Iowa State University) and Des Moines (the state capital) so it has convenient access to more conventional shopping, cultural and entertainment options. But the real reasons to visit Jefferson are that it lies at the heartland of some of the world's richest farmland and is a community of self-sufficiency and small-town values.
