Our Story


The Indigenous Farm Hub engages Indigenous communities in creating a network of farmers and families that will strengthen local and sustainable food systems by providing access to healthy foods, build prosperity for farmers and local communities through land reclamation, and reconnect the bond between language and culture to Indigenous practices of agriculture.


We create healthy and sustainable Indigenous food systems where community members, families, and farmers bond together to create a network of Indigenous farms that establish healthy food systems by strengthening access to nutritious, locally grown foods, reclaiming land, building prosperity, and revitalizing language and culture. There are two definitions that are essential concepts to the mission and vision of the Indigenous Farm Hub:

Food Sovereignty

The right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems (Declaration of Nyeleni).

Food Security

When all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. (UN Food and Ag Organization)
