There’s a new product we’d like to tell you about – thing is, this one isn’t on a shelf really, but rather on the salad bar and in our Fresh Foods cases. Introducing…..! Twin Oaks Tofu.
First a little about Twin Oaks Community Foods. Located in Louisa, VA, Twin Oaks is a worker-owned cooperative started over 40 years ago, an eco-village and egalitarian community founded on the principles of sustainability, nonviolence, equality and ecology. They are 500% dedicated to making the Earth a better place and do so by practicing what they preach and living as eco-friendly of a life as they they can. They all pitch in and do the work, they share food, housing, vehicles and other resources, minimizing waste and making as small an impact on the environment possible. Honestly, it sounds wonderful, can I go??
So let’s get to the tofu. As you may know, we take pride in our Fresh Foods being made with all organic ingredients. Imagine our shock when we realized that one of our staples, tofu, was no longer organic and therefore possibly GMO. Ahhhh, noooooooo! We set out immediately to find a replacement and we found even better. We found Twin Oaks Tofu.
Twin Oaks tofu is made with locally-grown soy, is certified organic, non-GMO and made using chlorine-free, non-flouridated artisan well water. It’s made by hand, too, not in any industrial factory assembly line. But the best part – the taste. It’s hard to describe, you just have to try it. The texture is different, there’s more taste than other tofus, less water, it seems to soak up seasonings like a sponge… it’s just delicious. The good people of Twin Oaks are very proud of their tofu – and rightfully so.
Stop in and give it a try, tell us if you agree on how awesome it is!
