About Good Earth
Good Earth Natural Foods started as a small co-op between Betty Junek and Katherine Dykstra, back in 1978. Over the years, we have grown in leaps and bounds, from a small operation in a garage, to a 6,000+ square foot retail space on Main Street in Spearfish. Kathy passed away a few years ago, but her dream and memory live on through Good Earth Natural Foods. Her son, Ed Dykstra, took over store operations in April 2014 in order to keep the store within the family.
Located just 8 miles East of the Wyoming border, just on the tip of the Black Hills National Forest, Spearfish boasts a population of just over 12,000 people. From August – May, we also have an additional 5,000 individuals enrolled at our local university, Black Hills State University. Our small, but tight knit community is very involved in the outdoors, with our main industries being tourism and timber. Spearfish is well known for its mountain bike tracks and races, along with its excellent hiking trails located on the surrounding mountains and in Spearfish Canyon.
Good Earth strives to bring healthy, bio-dynamic, fair trade, organic, and/or sustainable goods to our community. In April 2015, we expanded our retail space to include The Loft, a space dedicated to eco-apparel. Check out all the brands we carry below.
