Growing up, I used to go hiking with my grandmother who lived near forested mountains. She knew which plants were edible, and would pick various roots, leaves, and seeds to brew soothing teas. I half listened to her tell me about the health benefits of each plant-based concoction, as I savored them more for their deliciousness. This is where my love for natural, plant-based foods began.
I started with the vision of real, plant-based food that’s nourishing and delicious, just like my grandmother used to make. We believe that eating clean– without the additives used in modern day food-processing, is the best way to get all the nutrients nature intended for us. Nuts are one of nature's purest and most concentrated forms of energy. Inside one little nut are all the protein, fats, and micronutrients necessary to start a tree's life. A cup of home-made nutmilk with high nut content is comforting for the soul as it is nourishing for the body. So I set out to make the best nutmilks, starting with organic almondmilk.
Where Three Trees got its name
My grandmother’s food philosophy of using only unprocessed real food ingredients drives our approach to making almondmilk. For her, the forest was a pure, clean source for nutrient-rich plant ingredients. It became the inspiration for our name; in Chinese, the character for Forest 森 is comprised of three of the characters for Tree 木.
