Why Buy Local?
All of our products and services are open to the public.
Local markets are good for our health, good for our natural resources, good for our economy and good for our community. People enjoy the benefits of local, seasonal and sustainable grown and produced foods. Local markets help small farmers keep their family farms in agriculture rather than selling their land for urban sprawl. Local farmers farming with “Best Use” agricultural practices help keep our soil, water and air clean.
Food security is quickly becoming a priority as we read about food contamination, pesticides, chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, animal diseases, genetically modified seeds, and inhumane industrial farm practices. As food costs increase due to higher fuel costs, there is more hunger and disparity in access to food. Local communities can take the initiative to protect their food sources and the environment around them to ensure a healthy and abundant food supply.
The Oneida Nation Farm operates a cattle and bison operation, from our farm to your table. No steroids, hormones, antibiotics, or animal byproducts are used. The Oneida Nation Farm features a “Point-of-Origin” cow-calf pasture, a beef feedlot, and pastured Bison herd. The Apple Orchard has 34 acres of orchard with 36 different varieties. In addition they have fresh produce such as: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, sweetcorn, squash, pumpkins.
Tsyunhehkwa program is a culturally and community based agricultural entity of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. The program consists of two components, Agricultural & Cannery. The Agricultural component is located on a Certified Organic 80-acre site, which provides grass-fed beef, free range poultry, farm fresh eggs and organic produce. The Cannery processes not only our products, but items produced by other areas of the Nation and the Community. They work to be your educational resource in food security and pursuit toward self -sustainability.
