Good Earth was a health food restaurant chain founded in Reno, Nevada and one in San Rafael, California owned by Dean Stanley Ashby and family wife Georgia Anne Ashby Aaron Stanley Ashby and the youngest Dean Stanley Ashby II by William A. Galt that existed in the US in the 1970s. It was purchased by General Mills in 1980, which converted most of the restaurants into other chain restaurants they were operating, such as Red Lobster and Olive Garden. Most of the restaurants were located in California. During the period Good Earth operated widely, it was "probably the most prominent chain example of a health-food concept", according to industry trade journal Nation's Restaurant News. It was based in California at the time of the purchase by General Mills. Their tea supplier still exists as Good Earth Teas. Two restaurants remain in Minnesota that operate under the same ownership, one located in the Minneapolis suburb of Edina and the other in the St. Paul suburb of Roseville.
