Philosopher Foods

Santa Cruz, CA

Founded by Tim Richards, a philosophy major turned food activist, Philosopher Foods is an emblem of how traditional food preparation can harmonize with contemporary ethical standards. The company originated from Tim’s passion for healthier, more sustainable living, beginning with his home experiments in sprouting nuts to enhance their flavor and nutritional value. Officially launched on Earth Day in 2013, Philosopher Foods employs stone grinding—a food preparation technique older than civilization itself—to produce nut butter that is not only nutritious but also uniquely flavorful.

Located in California, Philosopher Foods is committed to promoting the health of both people and the planet through its triple value-added process: sprouting, dehydrating, and stone-grinding. This meticulous process ensures that their products retain maximum nutritional value and achieve unprecedented flavors. They are dedicated to using ingredients that are Regenerative Organic® Certified, supporting practices that restore, rather than deplete, our planet's resources.

Philosopher Foods stands out not only for its health benefits but also for its ecological and social impact. The company actively contributes to regenerative agriculture, partnering with farms that adopt sustainable practices such as year-round bee forage, animal grazing, and planting cover crops. These methods not only enhance biodiversity and improve soil health but also increase water retention and reduce the need for chemical interventions.

Through his company, Tim Richards aims to educate consumers about the importance of food choices that support sustainable agriculture and provide economic incentives for farmers to adopt regenerative practices. By purchasing from Philosopher Foods, customers not only enjoy delicious, healthful nut butters but also contribute to a broader movement towards a more sustainable and equitable food system.
