Osage Nation's Harvest Land is a working farm located in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Osage Nation experienced a breakdown in food systems. When the Osage Nation received CARES Act funds, it became apparent that there was a significant need to build the infrastructure to increase the capacity of food production. In light of this, the Harvest Land contains a 40,000 square foot greenhouse and a 44,000 square foot program building. The program building contains a large aquaponics system, a food processing area, and a water lab. Also located on the farm is an orchard that contains fruit and nut trees. The farm is a significant development in tribal food sovereignty efforts by providing locally grown produce year-round to the Osage people.
