FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 13, 2020
In response to the Navajo Nation Office of the President and Vice-President executive order (No. 004-20) issued on May 12, Navajo Agricultural Products Industry (“NAPI”) will further extend the partial shutdown of operations to prevent the potential spread of the coronavirus (“COVID-19”). NAPI is a wholly-owned enterprise of the Navajo Nation that operates and maintains a commercial farm with over 300 employees.
Initially, NAPI implemented the partial shutdown of operations on March 16 and tasked to identify essential employees. All non-essential employees were released home and provided paid administrative leave for the extent of the shutdown.
On May 13, NAPI issued a statement to all current employees to further extend the partial shutdown through June 7 with no repercussions. The main office and all other locations, with the exception of Region 2 Scales, will remain closed to the public until further notice.
Region 2 Scales is a store located on the farm that sells Navajo Pride products and open to the public with the reduced hours of Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Region 2 Scales is located 6 miles south of Farmington on Highway 371 and 6 miles west on Navajo Route 3003.
NAPI will continue to closely monitor and follow the recommendations provided by health and government officials.

I just want to say I like your product. I had never seen your brand before, however, with the current shortages and disrupted food chains, a small amount of 2 pound packages of the unbleached, all-purpose flour arrived in my local, big-chain supermarket. The wheat flavor came through in my pancakes which has made me aware of the lack of flavor in the brands I have used in the past.
Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate the support and excited to know about your results! Ahéhee (Thank you)!
When the pandemic started, everyone in my area hoarded all the flour on the shelves and I was very sad. A few weeks later, your flour showed up at the market. I bought a few bags of your Navajo Pride unbleached APF.
It is great quality and much appreciated. I bake a lot. Mostly breads and pizza dough! lol
So, thanks for making flour and being a GREAT option for me during these times. I hope to continue to have your flour to buy.
I hope you all are staying safe!

When are they going to reinstate the Prairie Dog hunting on the Napi? Are they going to have more classes for permits?
