The new Belushi's Farm Akwesasne, store opened last week in Akwesasne, NY, a Mohawk Nation territory that straddles the intersection of international borders and provincial boundaries on both banks of the St. Lawrence River. The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe was excited and proud to announce the partnership with Belushi's Farms.
On Thursday, Oct. 27 the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe held a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Belushi for the Grand opening of the new store. This makes the sixth state, along with Oregon, Colorado, Oklahoma, Illinois, Massachusetts, and now Akwesasne, that you can find Belushi's Farm products.

From humble beginnings in Oregon in 2015 with just 48 plants to today’s 93 acres and 1,800 feet along the Rogue River waterfront property and expansion into six states. Belushi's Farm is continuing to deliver superior products and is becoming the national brand to look for.
