FarmSoy is a family-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:

“FarmSoy Company 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, FarmSoy Company now supplies our great organic, hand-made, firm, extra firm, and soft tofu to all of the stores in the Fresh Market chain.

FarmSoy also supplies the same high quality organic tofu and our unique organic, plain, dairy-free soy yogurt called Soygurt, to stores in the Nashville and Knoxville areas. Visit our website at www.farmsoy.com for recipes and availability information, and check www.freshmarket.com for the Fresh Market nearest you. We’d like to thank all of our loyal customers for making it possible for us to keep making these delicious and health giving foods.”
