About May of 1952, Harvest Health Foods began with a passion for bringing 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, organic beer and wine, an array of local Michigan products, body care & supplements that meet our established product values. Our Product Values statement confirms our commitment to high quality, clean ingredient foods, home care and supplements you can be confident serving your family.

Harvest Health Foods opened in 1952, shortly after Henry Diedering came to the United States from the Netherlands. He sold natural products, baked goods and bread 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 her father for 20 years before taking over in 1991.  Cathy's, husband Henry, joined the family business in 1997 and the second location of Harvest Health Foods at Cascade and 28th was established.   In 2004,  Harvest Health Foods expanded to their third location in Hudsonville on 32nd Ave.  We celebrate our 65th Anniversary and the 90th birthday of our founder.   Harvest Health Foods celebrates an on-going legacy with Cathy and Henry's daughter, Emily and her husband Mitchell, leading Harvest Health Foods into the future.
  
Our Harvest Health Foods staff is one of our most valuable resources and they too are committed to a healthy future with Harvest Health Foods.  While not all are family members by blood, we feel privileged to call our staff family members of Harvest Health Foods.
