FarmSoy is an employee-owned business that handcrafts tofu, using organic soybeans bought directly from domestic family farmers. FarmSoy readily shared the names of the organic farmers who grow the organic soybeans used in their tofu and soy yogurt products.

They write:

“Farm Foods Company, FarmSoy Division, is a modern day version of the former Farm Soy Dairy, which originated in the early 1970’s as a means of diversifying the vegan diet of the Farm Community during its early communal period. After many changes and upgrades over the years, Farm Foods Company now supplies our locally sourced, organic, hand-made, soy products to you.

Farm Foods creates small batches of hand made tofu, soy yogurt (Soygurt), and tempeh for customers who value high quality foods made mindfully of our role in sustainable agriculture and communities. We invite you to come visit The Farm in Summertown, TN and be sure to stop in and say hi!”
