Tour the Hodo Soy Beanery

(Alert!  We’re currently taking a break from our Beanery Tours as we go through some facility upgrades.  We’ll keep you posted here on the Events Page when we are able to offer the tours again.  In the meantime, if you are curious about sampling Hodo Tofu and talking with one of our knowledgeable Brand Ambassadors, try to make it to a tasting or special event listed on this page or visit us at one of our Farmers’ Market stands on Saturdays, 8am-2pm at the Ferry Building in San Francisco or Sundays, 9am-1pm on California Ave. in Palo Alto!)

We welcome visitors to come watch Hodo Soy’s artisans at work and to taste their creations fresh off the line.  Hodo runs monthly tours of our Beanery.   We share the art of making tofu.  We hope that by opening up our facility to the public for tours, our community will gain a deeper connection to where their food comes from.
