Our story starts in a tree. When Darryl Nelson (our founder) was a boy, he suffered a fall from a tree that most young kids would have been sent to the doctor. Instead, he brushed himself off and kept right on playing earning him the nickname Tuffy. The name stuck, and in 1964, Darryl and his son Kenny started Tuffy's Pet Foods. Now Kenny's son Charlie is at the helm, working side by side with generations of other Perham families.
Tuffy's Pet Foods exemplifies the heart of Perham and small towns everywhere: compassion, integrity, and a deep-rooted sense of community guide our choices. Being family owned means we can make decisions based on what's best for our employees, our community and our ultimate customer family pets!
When you travel through the region, we hope you will stop and learn what makes Perham, MN unique. Charlie Nelson would tell you it is the community of families, working side by side, for generations, dedicated to producing pet foods for the long term health of family pets that sets Tuffy's Pet Foods apart.
