The Iverson family was nominated for the award by Five Valleys Land Trust.

The Iverson Ranch is located in the Potomac Valley and the Iverson family has been active and innovative in agricultural production and agricultural conservation for many years.

“As a family operation, the Iversons have shown leadership in water and soil management for generations,” said Juniper Davis, manager of Missoula County’s Parks, Trails and Open Lands division. “Their work sets an example in sustainable agricultural production, reducing conflict between livestock and predators, and forest stewardship. Their diligent efforts also improve the lands for their neighbors and other families who make a living by working the land.”
