Local Food Movement & the Quapaw Tribe

KJRH Television of Tulsa, Oklahoma reports the following interesting news:

The Quapaw Tribe is creating an agricultural program that will supply locally grown products for its casino restaurant.

Tribe Chairman John Berrey says the new program will include four greenhouses, which will be used to cultivate vegetables and herbs for the Downstream Casino Resort's Red Oak Steakhouse.

An additional 140 head of cattle will provide meat for the restaurant, and beehives will be used to make honey for salad dressings and sauces.

Berrey says the program will create new jobs for tribal members and add to the economic diversity of the Quapaw Tribe.
