About Harvest Health Foods

Over 65 years ago Harvest Health Foods began with a passion to bring wholesome nutritious foods to your neighborhood. Today that passion still holds true.  Harvest Health is your go-to natural and organic foods store, providing you with a large selection of certified organic produce, bulk items, herbs and spices, gluten-free foods, dairy-free, nut-free and other allergen free foods, body care & supplements that meet our established product values.  See our Product Values statement clarifying the ingredients we avoid at Harvest Health Foods. 

Harvest Health Foods opened in 1952, shortly after Henry Diedering came to the United States from the Netherlands. He sold natural products and baked goods and breads made with whole grain flours door to door. Henry’s efforts eventually grew into Harvest Health Foods, the premier natural grocer in West Michigan.

 

Henry did not think natural foods were out of the ordinary when he began his business. In the Netherlands, they didn't have packaged, processed foods like they had in the United States. His business was a natural outgrowth of his own traditions.

Cathy Atsma, Henry’s daughter, worked with him for 20 years before taking over in 1991. Today, Cathy and her husband, Henry manage three locations of Harvest Health Foods: the original Eastern at Burton, the second location on Cascade at 28th, and the newest location on 32nd Avenue in Hudsonville.

When you walk in the door at Harvest Health Foods, you'll be pleasantly pleased to find our shelves lined with natural vitamins, supplements, groceries and organic produce. You'll also find sports nutrition, a wide selection of health and beauty care along with a library filled with more than 100 titles on health-related topics.

Customer satisfaction is our passion and that is reached through communication and education. The staff at Harvest Health Foods listen to each customer's needs and provide information on natural products and supplements to fit those needs. Each customer has unique and individual health issues that are addressed with care and understanding.
