Iroquois White Corn Project: Husking Bee

Heritage Foods USA is working with the Iroquois White Corn Project in the Finger Lake Region to revive Iroquois White Corn, an heirloom corn variety, as part of a traditional Native American diet and provide a sustainable market for Haudenosaunee farmers. The very FIRST Husking Bee for Ganondagan’s Iroquois White Corn Project took place on Saturday, Oct. 26. Friends and community members gathered to help harvest, husk and braid the Iroquois White Corn.

Iroquois White Corn is available through Heritage Foods USA in three varieties – hulled white corn, roasted corn flour and white corn flour.

Enjoy some photos from the event!
