Wabeno – The Bodwéwadmi Ktëgan, which translates to Potawatomi Farm, in Forest County is promoting a farm-to-table lifestyle. The farm offers a variety of agriculture, from pigs, cows and bison to specific Potawatomi fruits and vegetables.
Joe Shepard, the assistant farm manager, was first introduced with the idea of starting the farm when he was in High School. The Potawatomi tribe, like many other Native American tribes through the United States, have a high rate of heart disease and diabetes.
