Harvest Moon Natural Foods Co-op first opened it’s doors to this community in June of 2010. It took a lot of hard work, dedication and vision from a wonderful group of Co-op minded folks, as well as support from the local community. While we are still very new in our Co-op journey, we have learned a lot along the way. We are proud of where we started and excited about where we are headed! Our area is no stranger to food Co-ops. Our hometown state of Minnesota has some of the best food Co-ops in the USA! Minnesota Public Television did a special on ‘Minnesota in the 70’s’. In the special they did a great feature on the beginning of the food Co-op movement in Minnesota.
