You'll say "Yum!" to the delicious taste of Organic Valley Soy. Our American-grown, identity-preserved organic beans and whole-bean process give you the most nutritious, flavorful, high fiber soy available. Organic. It’s all we do!
All our soybeans are grown in America’s soybean belt. We have carefully selected soybean varieties ideal for soy beverages. Nature has provided us with perfect soybeans and we see no need to isolate, concentrate or re-engineer them. We test our identity-preserved organic soybeans to be free of genetic engineering before the crop is planted. We know that non-genetically modified soybeans make OV Soy superior—another product we are honored to produce in harmony with nature.
Todd Boss and Donna Swanson grew up as neighbors and fellow 4-Hers in Manchester. Five years after they finished school, Cupid struck. Now Todd and Donna happily run the Boss family's 70 year-old farm, while living on Donna's family farm down the road. Frustrated with shrinking margins in conventional farming, in 2000 they began to convert their land to organic crops, including corn, oats, hay and of course soy. Today, T&D Farms is a family affair, with the Boss' two children, Zach and Mikaela, pitching in when they're not busy with sports. "Farming organically has allowed us to have a more sustainable, safer cropping system," said Todd. "By growing organic, we hope to get back to our roots."
Just south of Belle Plaine in Iowa County, John Martin has 160 organic acres which he works pretty much by himself. Dairy cows used to be the mainstay of the farm, and he still maintains a herd of 16 Holsteins., but organic hay, corn, and soybeans now take up the majority of John's time.
Even more than usual, John's got a very busy season ahead. He's transitioning 70 of a neighbor's acres to organic, and he'll be farming 30 of his own acres that have been out of production for 20 years in the Conservation Reserve Program. With all of this on his plate, you wouldn't believe he's 61 years old. He laughs and points out that he eats well. "I live the lifestyle,” he says. “Always have."
