Elmhurst Milked was founded in 2017, but the company’s roots date back to 1925. Formed in Queens, NY as Elmhurst Dairy, the multigenerational, family-run organization was in business for almost a century. Henry Schwartz, son of the founder, Max, took over the business in the 1970s and ran it successfully for 40 years.

After a fortuitous meeting with plant nutrition pioneer, Dr. Cheryl Mitchell, Henry Elmhurst Milked made a progressive pivot and decided to close their famous dairy plant. He repurposed his iconic brand and started Elmhurst Milked – a line of innovative, nutritious plant-based beverages.

Dr. Cheryl and her patented HydroRelease™ technology provided Henry the confidence to make such a prescient shift – the proprietary process uses water to liberate nutrients from raw grains, nuts, and seeds. These nutrients then recombine naturally to form a smooth, creamy beverage without the need for industrial chemicals and thickeners.
