It was a brisk business day. We have 4 turkeys left before I have to change the sign! We'll be back at your service at 10:00 am Monday!

I ordered these hoping they were very appley AND very "bourbony". Wow, I am NOT disappointed! These are preserves, not apple butter and they're incredible. Putting together a gift basket, need a host or hostess gift for that Thanksgiving chef? These are made in Michigan and pure class!

Mary's DELICIOUS, naturally raised, organically fed, and never fed antibiotics, turkeys came in the door today! One third of our order is already sold! If I you think you're wanting one, dont delay! Avoid disappointment!

[11/11/19]   Greetings to my customers, friends and those who like us on Facebook. You may have realized that I (Debie) haven't been in the store lately. I want to update you on what's been going on and assure that I'm still the owner, still very involved behind the scenes and have every intention of being back to wait on you, hopefully soon. On October 6th, my mom took a fall. I spent that day in the emergency room with her. She cracked her pelvis in two places, was admitted to Covenant, stayed 4 days and then went to Covenant's rehab hospital. After 20 days in rehab, my brother and I found it necessary to seek an assisted living facility for her. I moved her on the 29th to Shields Comfort Care. Since then, I've had to get her to doctors appointments, then another trip to er for a severe infection, another hospital admittance and yesterday back to Shields with a follow up doctor appointment on Tuesday. She's now using a wheel chair so every doctor trip, etc, takes much of the day. I'm also trying to take care of all her business, check on her home, pay her bill's, etc. My brother is taking things to task that he can do via the phone from Ohio. My husband Paul and employee Roxanne have been holding down the fort. Thank God he is retired and is able to be there. I sincerely have no idea what folks do that aren't retired or have someone to cover their business hours. I surely would have lost my job by now or taken a family leave and lost my shirt without a paycheck. I miss being at Heritage Natural Foods and seeing my customers! We are still planning our annual Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 7th! God willing, I'll be back way before that and we'll have a great holiday celebration!

Here's a heads up!! Once again, Mary's all natural turkeys are ordered and scheduled to arrive in the store on Wednesday, November 13th. They are DELICIOUS! Mary's Turkeys are fed a certified organic, non GMO diet and are never fed animal by-products or antibiotics. They are given no added hormones and the meat has no preservatives added. You'll simply be eating good quality turkey and nothing else. These birds are predominantly in the 12 to 16 pound range. EVERY SINGLE YEAR we sell out and some years it happens more quickly than others. They are regularly priced at $3.79 per pound, our sale price is $2.69. I have served one every year for over a decade. Nothing that's factory farmed and mass marketed compares in taste, quality or purity! If you know you want one for sure, you should call or get into the store as soon as they arrive on the 13th!

[10/10/19]   Unseasonably beautiful weather is a killer on businesses 😥

If you subscribe to our snail mail newsletter The Rag, you should have received your October issue. It includes a yummy (in my opinion) recipe for keto pumpkin cookies with these delicious stevia sweetened chocolate chips. I personally tweaked this recipe and baked them in my own "test kitchen ". These yummy semi sweet chips are on sale in October, 9 oz bag. Reg.8.99, Sale 6.75! Recipe will appear on our face book page soon! BY THE WAY, FACEBOOK IS NOT ALLOWING ME TO ANSWER ANY COMMENTS OR EVEN GIVE A THUNBS UP OTHER THAN IN A PRIVATE MESSAGE. IM TRYING TO WORK THIS OUT BUT NOT BEING SUCCESSFUL SO FAR.

A note from Debie: All during September, we've been featuring some of my favorite products in celebration of my 65th birthday. This is a super fave, I wear it often and refresh it at work from the sample bottle lol. If you have a little bit of old hippie in you, you'll love this essential oil blend: peppermint, patchouli, orange, lavender and basil! I LOVE it! 1 oz. Bottle, Reg. $12.99, on sale for $9.75!

[09/20/19]   Good morning! Just a reminder that we're back to 6 business days a week! Thank you so much for your patience as we enjoyed our summer weekends, vacationing and accomplishing so much such as building maintenance, etc. Doors will be open, tomorrow, Saturday the 21st, at 10:00 a.m.

Excuse the crumpled bag, but it's proof positive that I've been enjoying this incredible snack. Gluten free, vegan (that's cheddar "flavored" from a combo of veggie powders) low carb, low fat, low calorie. It doesn't get any better considering that they're truely delicious!!

[08/28/19]   Sometimes long term customers become friends. Heritage Natural Foods is mourning the loss of Roy D. Markva, a loyal supporter and encourager for all of our 37 years of business .

Hey, Heritage shoppers! We just received a huge order of Radius toothbrushes. If you've never used a Radius, you have no idea how thoroughly clean your mouth can feel. It's like a massage! Anyway, by buying a ton of them, we were given a great discount. So, from now through next Tuesday, we're offering these at 30% off! Normally $9.99, they'll be just $6.99! We have them for the lefties too! After this, the deal goes away until it's time to sell stocking stuffers! Come on in!

Looking for a delicious, quality olive oil that won't break the bank? We have Ellyndale Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, first cold pressed, unrefined, bottled in dark glass and pretty enough to grace your kitchen counter. Seriously, I've spent way more for a smaller bottle at that fancy deli in Ann Arbor and ours, at $10.99 for 16.9 oz. was as good, if not better. It's incredible for dipping or over salads, you name it! Stop in and pick up a quality product at a great price. That's what Heritage is known for!

When your granddaughter craves a cookie, it's so nice to know she loves these organic, gluten free, crispy gingers! Regular 5.09, on sale for just 3.79. I wasn't sure if she'd like them cuz they're nice and gingery but, grandma for the win!

[08/01/19]   Good morning! If you subscribe to our snail mail newsletter, "The Rag", the August edition should be in your mail box this morning. You'll find some in depth product information, many supplements at 50% savings (not clearance, not short dated, just passing on super deals) and great foods including bone broth soup cups and single servings of beet juice with vitamin B-12! Come on in. The sale is set up and ready to go!

[07/08/19]   Thanks for bearing with us while we took a few days to breathe the northern air and decompress! We're refreshed and open for business! There's a grocery truck arriving tomorrow bringing new things to try and to fill in the gaps on our shelves! Please stop in and say hello!

[07/08/19]   We apologize for the inconvenience. Upon returning from vacation, we learned of the death of a beautiful and loving young woman who was a past tenant. The showing and service is this morning at 10:00. We are making a brief appearance and will open at 10:30. Again, our sincere apologies!

[07/05/19]   Just saw a bulletin board up north that says, "movement is medicine". Keep moving!

Just a reminder that we'll be closed for a short but much needed vacation from July 4th through the 7th. We're open today and tomorrow with lots of great new products on our July sale table. Have a safe and happy 4th! I'll be frolicking in Sault Ste. Marie!

[07/01/19]   Hi gang! We have a new sale up and running for July! It includes some great snack items for your holiday picnic needs! Just a note to let you know that we'll be closed from Thursday, July 4th, through Sunday, July 7th. See you on the 8th. Happy 4th!! Let freedom ring!

You'll up your game when you add lots of Weaver's raw, fermented sauerkraut with caraway to your 4th of July dogs! Nothing better than a prebiotic food, made in Pure Michigan! New month, new sale ! Happy July!

Sorry about the shaky camera/ hand lol

Good morning! After a three day time of refreshment, we'll be here to serve you at 10:00 am. While, at our store, you can be confident that we've read the label FOR you (unless you have allergies, etc), please be careful out there when indulging in this season of wonderful fresh produce. Yes, organic is more expensive, but before purchasing from "The Dirty Dozen", we urge you to cut your budget elsewhere or skip these altogether, before buying non organic. Fresh produce that is heavily sprayed with toxins is far from a healthy option, it's poison. BY THE WAY, we do offer wonderful, frozen, Michigan organic tart cherries as well as organic Michigan dried cherries! They sell like crazy!

New flavor! NOW Toffee Carmel Fudge Whey Protein Isolate! We received a 40% intro discount and we're passing it along to you. According to the company, "Whey Protein Isolate is a high quality protein that is bio available and easily digested. Whey protein is considered to have the highest biological value of any protein source-superior in essential amino acid content to beef, milk, casein or soy". 1.8 lbs. 24 servings Reg. $44.99, Sale $26.99
