We've been serving Ukiah since 1976, that's 44 years! Ukiah is where we're from and who we are. We're dedicated to fostering practices that will help our community flourish - which means carrying only the most environmentally responsible products we can find and investing in our community. Literally.

In 2020 we donated $16,000 from our 2019 profits to fund the Community Grants and Donations. We were able to support 15 local non-profits working in the fields of health, wellness, and education. Find the list of recipients here.

Beyond that, we're dedicated to cultivating a culture of people who appreciate farmers and real food. Together, we're doing our part to nourish the place we call home.

In addition to supporting our community in a variety of ways, Ukiah Natural Foods works to reduce waste, create living wage jobs, and embrace energy saving technologies and ideas. We know that in order for a place to grow and stay well, everyone must do their part. We try to lead by example and invite everyone in Ukiah to do the same!
