Located in the scenic mountains of Southern California, Lark Ellen Farm is nestled in the beautiful Ojai Valley. Ojai (pronounced O-hi) has for many years been a mecca for those seeking physical and spiritual health. Over the years both young and old have found their way to this lovely town. At the East end of the valley lies Lark Ellen Farm. A small farm where fresh organic eggs come from free ranging chickens. Fruit, vegetables and herbs grow in abundance in rich organic soil. It is here, where a commitment to good health prevails, that our Grain Free Granola was created.
It all began with a 30-day commitment to avoid all grains. This was a desperate attempt to heal my digestive system. I had been reading about how grains and wheat can cause inflammation, so I turned my body into an experiment to see if avoiding them would make a difference. At the end of the trial period, I felt great, my digestive system had improved, and some lifelong chronic pain was gone! I never wanted to go back to grains. I began to experiment with sprouting and dehydrating nuts and seeds, and combining them with delicious and healthy ingredients.
My new creations were popular with friends and family, who suggested I sell them at the Ojai Farmers’ Market. We sold out the first day and haven’t stopped since. We have grown our facility, but remain committed to our original values. We continue to sprout our nuts and seeds, and handcraft each batch. No fillers, additives, or grains of any kind are ever used. Enjoying our products will take you back to a time when food was real, and when eating nourished your body, not harmed it.
