Iroquois White Corn – Happy and Healthy

470-3Iroquois White Corn produces three kinds of GMO-free products made with “Good Minds” at Ganondagan, and they’re DELICIOUS! Because they rely on traditional methods to hand-grow, hand-pick and hand-process their corn, it is good for all of us and for Mother Earth. We can’t wait to see them at the festival this year, so we decided to learn a little more about them before the festival starts.

Message: Iroquois White Corn products are good for the world and for you. The corn is high in fiber, high in protein, gluten free and low in sugar! The only thing Iroquois White Corn adds is love.

Inspiration: The Iroquois White Corn goal is to restore the farming, consumption and distribution of the traditional Iroquois White Corn to Native communities and the community-at-large.
