Roam Free Ranch (https://goroamfree.com) is a 16,000 acre grass-fed bison ranch in Hot Springs, Montana.  In 2020, Roam Free Ranch utilized a USDA Rural Development Value Added Producer Grant to secure funding to help scale production capacity and expand their markets.  With the help of this award, Brittany and Jon are realizing their dreams and have grown their initial 240-acre investment into a thriving business with multiple employees that is supplying America with Montana-raised bison products.
