Local Bulk Buying Clubs or Co-Ops
We asked for suggestions for this page and this is what we found:
- Sue: “This is not in Grand Rapids but I LOVE Country Life Natural Foods, an awesome food coop in Pullman, about an hour’s drive from Grand Rapids. I buy 25 pound bags of organic wheat berries there plus lots of other things. They are run by the Seventh Day Adventists. Here is their web site. You do not have to be a member; anyone can shop there. They are vegetarians, so no meat products, but a huge variety of other, mostly organic items at a very good price. A huge variety of grains, seeds, nuts, coconut oil, etc.“
- Delton Food Co-op – Contact Person: Christyl Burnett 269-795-3133. Orders every 4 weeks from UNFI, orders every 4 to 6 months from Frontier, orders every 3 to 6 months from Farm Country Cheese in Lakeview, MI. Pick up in Delton (Barry County).
- Raw Honey Group Order – Contact Person: Lucinda Moody firstname.lastname@example.org. Order every few months throughout the year.
