Success, thanks to our owners. Join today!
Joining Natural Harvest is easy and important! Everyone who becomes an owner ensures that this business continues to grow and prosper. With the support and patronage of our members, we’re making an important and powerful contribution to the health of the planet.
As a business, we are different because our owners are the people who use and care about this store. We are different because co-ops don’t provide consumer benefits to make a profit… rather, we use capital to provide consumer benefits!
Come and join us! Be proud to be part of a dynamic group of people that started in 1976 to build Natural Harvest into one of the most successful co-ops in Northern Minnesota!
