The Permans, and their Rock Hills Ranch are the 2014 winners of the Aldo Leopold Award for South Dakota. Here they share the keys to their growth and success, including how they worked to get out of the boom bust cycle caused by drought, and their hopes for the future.

Enjoy this visit to a beautiful place with green grass and cattle. It’s what we all need in the middle of winter. 🙂
