About Us
Wozupi’s grounds include several gardens, an orchard, green houses, and a root cellar. A 13-acre vegetable garden yields the majority of Wozupi’s produce. Multiple smaller gardens, such as a Medicine Garden tended by tribal members, are used primarily for education and wellness programs for the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. To preserve rare, indigenous foods, we plant several heritage varieties of corn, squash and beans.
Along with protecting pollinators by providing habitat and growing organically, we keep our own bees and collect their honey. About 100 honeybee hives make up the six apiaries producing Wozupi’s honey, which is available seasonally at farmers markets and year-round at various stores.
