Greg Oehler , broker with Gillespie Realty , said that some Gillespie County ranches are being turned into subdivisions , but not as many as in Kerr County
Some ranchers here are changing crops , choosing to grow coastal Bermuda grass , said Oehler
.However , the rising cost of fertilizer will hurt area ranchers this year..
During the past few years , only one property was sold by Gillespie Realty strictly for agriculture.We still have property available for hunting leases , Oehler
The general consensus remains the same in Kimble County
