Did you know WNY is home to one of the fastest growing plant-based milk companies in America?

Here’s the backstory…

Elmhurst Dairy was founded in Queens, New York back in 1925. The family tradition lived on for 90+ years, until Henry Schwartz closed his family’s last dairy in New York City in 2016. 

Shutting down this historic dairy was not the end of Elmhurst, but rather the start of an exciting new chapter. 


After spending his life in the dairy business, starting an innovative plant milk company was a radical but perfectly logical change for Henry. He went all in on the plant-based revolution by partnering with Dr. Cheryl to bring her technology to market in 2017. 

Along the way, Henry preserved the iconic name along and now Elmhurst 1925 is the fastest-growing plant-based beverage company on the market!

Elmhurst 1925 is based in Elma, NY and known for developing one of the cleanest and most nutrient dense plant-based milk alternatives around.

The Western New Yorkers who started and maintain this business take great pride in crafting great tasting and unique varieties of plant-based milks and creamers. 

If the name sounds familiar, it’s likely because you’ve seen Elmhurst 1925 at your favorite grocery store, coffee shop, or events. You can find Elmhurst 1925 locally at Wegmans, Tops, Dash’s, and co-ops as well as coffee shops around the WNY here. 


Elmhurst 1925’s local ties extend even further since their manufacturing facility is hydroelectricity powered by Niagara Falls. 

Elmhurst 1925 is expanding across the country as well as internationally, but home will always be right here in WNY. So when you spot this plant-based brand, you’re supporting a company with local roots.
