Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

The original idea behind Fry’s was to find a way to make nutritious products for our family who are all passionate about plant-based diets. Back when we started in 1991 most people thought we were crazy. “Plants that look and taste like meat, made in your kitchen!?” Okay, maybe we were crazy, but with passion and determination, great things can happen.

We are thrilled to be sponsoring The Gentle 12 this November for World Vegan Month at the three Gentle Barn locations and look forward to all the visitors coming to meet the animals and sampling our delicious Fry’s treats. We adore the work that Ellie, Jay, and everyone at the California, Missouri and Tennessee sanctuaries are doing to save so many wonderful animals and provide them with a safe, loving home. By choosing our Fry’s plant-based products over animal protein, our customers end up saving over 3.5 million animals each year so The Gentle Barn’s dedication to the health and well-being of these loving farm animals fits perfectly with our own mission of saving the planet and all of its inhabitants.
