family owned business
Rick Perry, Founder and CEO
Meet Rick Perry, the creator of NutriGardens, a family run business developed from a need and desire to recover in a healthy, natural way without pharmaceuticals.
Rick is Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, having worked as an executive chef, private chef, and eventually became a recipe tester, cookbook author, founder, and publisher of Collectors Press. In 2014 he went vegan to improve health and help others.
After a serious bicycle accident, Richard experienced a profound physical awakening from fresh juices’ natural healing properties. His experience turned into a passion and he began to research how these nutritious whole foods worked for healing and wellness.
Water was accidentally spilled during the photo shoot and this cool image was created showing the clean nature of Beet Boost.
Rick consulted with dietitians, formulators, food innovators, and scientists around the country and especially at Oregon State University, bringing NutriGardens to life. Through this knowledge, it became clear that nitrate and phytochemicals were superstars of natural foods, specifically beets, red spinach, and tart cherries.
Made in small batches and tested first by family and friends, the ingredients found in NutriGardens’ formulas are personally sourced by Richard to ensure freshness and efficacy. He also oversees the entire production process, ensuring that the finished products are of the highest quality possible.

Rick and his family are passionate about supporting people on their journey to a healthier life. When he is not helping elite athletes gain a competitive advantage or consulting others to improve their health, he is cooking, cycling, camping, hiking, or working on his next product.
