About Us

New Ulm’s Own is a nonprofit fair trade store featuring fair trade products handcrafted by artisans in developing countries. 

We also feature artwork created by local artisans.  

We offer fair trade chocolates and coffee, handcrafted gifts, jewelry and other products. These artisans lack access to markets, business skills and tools needed to grow. They use sustainable materials. Through such organizations as Ten Thousand Villages and Servv, we are able to access these products with an eye toward creating a better world.

Our profits will go to support the operation of local charities such as the NUMAS Haus in New Ulm, Minnesota. NUMAS Haus provides emergency shelter and support services to homeless single mother families with school age children from the New Ulm, Minnesota area.

We have also contributed to Brown County Family Services Foster Care Program and to the Southern Minnesota Crisis Nursery. 

For more information or to volunteer to staff New Ulm's Own, please call or email.  

Join our Coffee Club!

We offer a variety of coffees, both whole bean and drip grind.  Buy 11 coffees and the 12th one is free.
