Our family has been shopping at Orchard Nutrition since we have moved here in 2003. I really appreciate the warm way the staff greet you as you enter their building. Joe, the owner, always has a warm “hello” for me and he is always interested in my family and how I am doing. This same warmth is evident in many of the staff members employed by him.
I especially have appreciated having access to Orchard’s health options that are not easy to find in Redding. I feel they strive to find some of the most pure and local products from our local folks. I always frequent the produce section and love to support our local farmers. I especially enjoy the local lemons, watermelons, oranges and kale. Having these health options has benefited our family. In addition to the produce section, I truly appreciate the local raw honey and organic olive oil. Our family values the hard work and dedication of our local farmers.
Our son has especially benefitted from Orchard Nutrition’s healthy choices. He is a vibrant, curious and very healthy fourteen-year-old with lots of energy. He also has a diagnosis of autism. At one time in his development, it was important to purchase gluten free products. These are getting easier to find, but Orchard had the best selection 8 years ago. I have purchased gluten free crackers, cookies, bread, pasta and muffins from Orchard as well as fun treats and options for my son’s diet. In addition to purchasing dried goods for him, I have also purchased supplements to help with his anxiety and increase calmness.
Redding is very blessed to have such a wonderful shopping experience for it’s local families. A warm thank you to all the staff members! I always appreciate the time you take to help answer my health questions.
Respectfully, Monica Thoma
