How it all began…
Bodhi Tree Juice Co organically grew from Renee’s passion for good, clean food and her love of sharing that passion with everyone.
Renee has 20+ years experience in managing health food stores. She has her degree as a Holistic Health Practitioner and is a Certified Nutritionist. She teaches vegetarian cooking classes and juicing classes in the Grand Haven area and around West Michigan.
Her husband, John, is an organic farmer, a lifelong passion of his. He sells organic produce at West Michigan Farmers Markets and is an Organic Gardening Consultant.
Together, they started going to farmers markets in the summer of 2016. Renee had an idea to sell bags of produce that were recipe ready for customers to take home and juice themselves. It was a big hit at the market, however customers kept telling her they would love for her to make juice for them. So, in October 2016, she rented Kitchen 242 and experimented in creating some delicious juice blends.
In one year, the company has grown from doing one farmers market to five farmers markets. The juice line has increased and we have introduced shots and nut milks to our line of organic beverages. Bodhi Tree Market partners with area businesses doing pop up markets at their store locations. This has been a great addition to everyone involved and a wonderful way to build community.
We support our local community and farmers by buying produce directly from the source when possible and donating all our compost to local organic farms.
