Hodo Soy Tofu
“I thought I knew tofu until I tried Hodo Soy,” says Sunbasket’s executive chef, Justine Kelly. “This tofu has true texture and a real depth of flavor.” Founded by Minh Tsai, Hodo Soy’s tofu starts with the best quality non–GMO soybeans and never includes additives, stabilizers or preservatives.
Founded in 1976, the Capay Family Farm organically grows almost 60 types of fruits and vegetables, making efficient use of local water sources and their Northern California microclimate and healthy soil.
Lakeside Organic Gardens

Farmers since the late 1800s, the Peixoto family is committed to promoting biodiversity, protecting wildlife, and conserving water. Rather than grow a single crop on hundreds of acres they produce dozens of varieties of organic vegetables on more than 50 small farms and ranches spread throughout California’s Central Coast and in the Imperial Valley.
