Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community Wozupi

Wozupi Tribal Gardens in Prior Lake, Minnesota, is owned and operated by The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. Wozupi is an organic farm committed to growing food in a way that nourishes the earth, the community, and people’s minds and bodies.

Using environmentally-sustainable and fair labor practices, we grow fruit, vegetables and herbs, produce eggs, honey, and maple syrup, and provide educational, therapeutic, and fun opportunities at the farm and through community outreach.
