Homemade Artisanal and Traditional Foods

At the heart of our 5-acre campus in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, is our Winyan Toka Win Owozu (Leading Lady Garden). Each year, this garden provides approximately 10,000 pounds of nutritious, pesticide-free, locally grown fruits and vegetables that we incorporate into meals and snacks at our youth and teen centers and share with our community.

We also process and preserve our produce, crafting small-batch artisanal food that is available to the public through our Keya (Turtle) Gift Shop. All proceeds directly benefit our programming and services here at CRYP.

To learn more about what we have available or to place your order, call CRYP at (605) 964-8200 or email Julie Garreau at julie.cryp@gmail.com or Crystal Lind at finance.cryp@gmail.com.
