Elmhurst 1925

A lifelong dairyman and a renowned visionary in plant-based nutrition. Sound like a match? Not really. Maybe that’s exactly why it works. Henry Schwartz, owner of the last dairy in New York City, had a fortuitous meeting with Dr. Cheryl Mitchell, who had spent decades developing HydroRelease – a unique method for using water to separate and draw the nutrients from nuts, grains, and seeds to produce a naturally smooth, creamy beverage without any added emulsifiers or thickeners. Inspired by Dr. Cheryl, Henry made the shocking move to close his 90-year-old dairy, start anew, and give its name – Elmhurst – to a new innovative line of plant milks.
