Double H Feed & Supply – serving Kadoka

Double H owner Ted Hicks (behind the counter) and customer Jerry Magelky.

In the language of the Siouan people, Kadoka means “opening.” A community with that unusual name blooms along the south side of Interstate 90, a gateway or “opening” to the South Dakota Badlands. Drivers of most high speed vehicles taking that trail across the prairie hardly blink or yawn as the exit signs bearing the strange name loom up, only to swiftly recede in their rearview mirrors.

Kadoka shares that distinction with unnumbered similar small towns nationwide. Changing times, fashions and economies encroach upon such towns like bindweed and Russian thistles, threatening to choke out every vestige of life or prosperity, withering their beauty and vitality, stealing their appeal.

Appearing on a website titled “epodunk.com” isn’t exactly fortuitous… and even as county seat of Jackson County, Kadoka’s population was under 700 at last count, with median annual household incomes under $27,000. A community does not consist of dry cold facts, however.

Mere survival for more than a century in the climactic extremities of southeastern South Dakota commends to tenacity. The true heart and soul of a place can only be found in its people, and many Kadoka people are spirited and active. Entrepreneurial talent looms large. The community participates in Horizons III, welcoming training and resources on topics including leadership, poverty reduction, community development, visioning, and strategic planning; then taking action to enhance their internal resources and learn how to approach outside resource partners.

Double H Feed & Supply is a bellwether of that industrious, entrepreneurial attitude in Kadoka. Heading down the road toward the White River you could easily miss it, just off to your left. Neither paint nor space is wasted in advertising, and the scattered warehouses and stockpiles scarcely draw the eye. Yet this business serves a big section of the White River country including Martin, Interior, Scenic, Kyle, Hayes, Philip, Longvalley and more further-flung communities, ranches and farms.
