Two Ways To Buy

 

We order fresh natural foods by the truckload….

…but you don’t have to buy a truckload! We order the freshest natural foods from across America – apples and oranges, whole grains and nuts, and lots of other good things in between. A few weeks before we receive a shipment, we send out an email to the members in our group – let’s say it’s apples. If you’ve subscribed to our apples list, for example, we’ll send you an email when we’re taking orders for apples. (You can subscribe or unsubscribe from any of our lists at any time). Okay, so keeping with our example about apples. You’d get emails now and then that say something like “We’re ordering apples!” Our system will prompt you to visit our website where you can see all the prices, varieties, and details of what’s available. You can then select the quantities and items you want and then place your order right here at BulkNaturalFoods.com. As the time draws near you will receive an email that reminds you of the pick up day. When you arrive at your local pick up point, you simply pay for and load your order. The process is well organized, the natural foods are excellent, and the prices are great. It’s well worth it for you and your friends to sign up and give it a try. Below is an overview of what we offer. Click the “Current Co-op Orders” button above to see what’s available now.

Whole Grain Wheat, Spelt and Kamut Berries in Bulk

The bulk grain we order is non-GMO and either certified chemical free, or organic. Wheat, spelt, and Kamut are available in 50 lb bags and 45 lb pails. Whole wheat and spelt flours are also available. Take a look at the different varieties of whole grains and their uses by browsing our seasonal products. Organic and Natural Fresh Fruit Organic fresh fruit is nutrient dense and usually tastes better than non-organic fruit, so we seek out organic growers as much as we can. However, the cost of buying organic fruit, even in bulk, can be prohibitive for some people. Almost all of our “conventional” fruits come from farms that use a minimal spray program, sometimes known as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This system uses beneficial insects, traps, and prevention, and only sprays chemicals as a last resort; we consider it to be an affordable step down from true organic foods. Throughout the year, we order many types of fruit: fresh apples, pears, peaches, plums, Concord grapes, cherries, oranges, grapefruits, and tangerines, in peak season, directly from family farms, orchards, and groves around the country. Join us, and experience some of the best fruit you have ever tasted! Fruit tastes so much better when it is fresh, organic or naturally grown and in season.

Unpasteurized Almonds and Other Raw Nuts

Unpasteurized raw almonds have become increasingly difficult to find. We offer them during almost every co-op order for local pick up, or you can have them shipped directly to you when you order through our store.

Nourishing Traditions Foods: high vitamin butter oil, rapadura, and Celtic salt, fermented cod liver oil, coconut oil, and more.

The Nourishing Traditions cookbook has swept through the country, warning of the dangers of processed food and teaching people to better their health through traditional food preparation. Since many of the foods recommended in Nourishing Traditions, such as high vitamin butter oil, rapadura, coconut oil and Celtic sea salt, are not available at our local markets, we often place bulk orders just for special items like these.

Raw Local Honey

Most honey, even honey labeled raw, isn’t really raw. For the sake of easier packaging, bee-keepers are allowed to heat the honey up to 117 degrees or more, and still label it raw, even though its valuable enzymes have been destroyed. We work directly with local bee keepers to offer you the best organically managed, unheated, raw honey, in bulk or smaller quantities.

Bulk Superfood Powder

In our day of depleted soils and chemical fertilizers, it is wise to take a daily whole food supplement. A “superfood” is one which is nutrient dense, and may also fight diseases. Our Superfood is a blend of 13 organic superfoods, including spirulina and chlorella, two powerful detoxifiers. Almost everyone who uses Superfood reports a noticable boost in energy and an overall feeling of better health. Buy it in bulk through our online store or coop, and feel the difference!

Local organic vegetables, grass fed beef, and raw milk

We do not grow organic vegetables, raise grass fed meat, or produce raw milk, but we do offer a directory through which you can find these products in your local area. And from time to time throughout the growing season, we do make local vegetables available to the extended local co-op.

Bulk Food Sizes

Most of our fruit comes boxed in bushels or half bushels. Smaller fruits, like cherries, come in smaller quantities (15 – 20 lb boxes). Bulk wheat and whole grains come in 50 lb bags or pails.
