Goodness is a worthy cause.
Everyday people make decisions and take action that cause goodness to grow. Their actions are like pebbles in a pond, one small stone can cause an endless ripple. Neighbors who watch your home while you are gone, friends who care for you while you are sick, someone who pays it forward at the grocery store. All of this is goodness and we want to recognize it and share it.
At Lark Ellen Farm we craft foods that nourish your body and we recognize those people that nourish your soul.
Founder, Lark Ellen Farm
Every week we recognize one person that has spread goodness.
It doesn't have to be extraordinary just that it had an impact.
The person being recognized will receive a free bag of our grainless goodness, a note of thanks, coupons and a call out on social media.
Sharing the goodness is just that simple. Nominate someone today.

When the Thomas fire was heading toward Ojai, Cynthia realized that her neighbor who has trouble walking & uses a portable oxygen system might not have a way to evacuate...Read it all on our Instagram! Cynthia called her and arranged to take her and their essential belongings to Santa Barbara. She chose a motel close to Cottage Hospital in case the oxygen tank failed. They settled in there for two nights. Cynthia is not only organized but is attuned to others.

"Jeanette is a flight attendant I met at work. We flew together just one leg and clicked right away. I learned later in the flight that she was a kidney donor. I cried, but I wasn’t surprised. I knew she was selfless and kind by the way she treated the crew and the passengers. But I was moved beyond words, and I’ve felt this way about her every day since! She inspires me to be the best version of myself, to live FOR myself, and to love others and treat others with kindness and respect every single day.The photo included is a photo of her with one of our passengers, who is also now a kidney donor. At the time, she was flying to visit family anxiously before her procedure. She saw Jeanette’s “donate life” pin on her apron and they started talking about Jeanette’s experience and Jeanette was able to ease her mind about the process and procedure. AMAZING.”

"Jenn is a peaceful parenting advocate, a caring mom to four boys, and an incredible friend. I have seen her relate to children with such kindness and consideration, even in the most difficult moments. She volunteers for the causes she supports and is always ready to offer empathy and helpful resources to other parents. She's even changed her diet drastically so she can be healthier and live longer to do more good in the world. She inspires me every time I'm around her."

"Pat is a "doer". She is involved in many good deeds, too many to even count...She visits people who are in a care facility and organizes people to fill Christmas boxes for Samaritan's Purse that are sent all over the world. Every year for 24 years, she has helped her husband organize the filling of 150 Thanksgiving baskets to be distributed in the community. If anyone has a job that needs to be done, Pat is the person that can be counted on to do it and to do it right. Helping others to accomplish their goals is her way of life."

“Emma is one of the kindest people I know. She is always there for everyone in her life and goes above and beyond as a friend, daughter, wife, community advocate, teacher, and person. She is just a wonderful person, and the world is lucky to have her.”

“I want to nominate my friend Aylsia, she's quickly become one of my most supportive, loyal friends. She's constantly looking out for me in terms of career and networking opportunities, and offering to help me with anything blog/wellness/social media related. She's unbelievably thoughtful and even picked up a little donut-themed gift she saw that made her think of me. She's the sweetest and deserves a little #LEFLoves spotlight for sure!!”
“She’s such a kind spirited person in the Instagram community! I love her sense of humor and that she’s always keeping it real! She promotes self-love, which everyone could use a little more of this time of year!”

"(Trevor) is an attorney in Ventura, CA and lives in our little town. Last year when we had fires he was a major force in the community, dropping everything to help others effected by the fires.He strengthened the community by providing assistance, actively sharing stories and coordinating relief efforts. With the new fires, Trevor has jumped in again to help others in need. After being through the fire last year he knows what others need. Yesterday, he and his crew of volunteers, young and old, built 100 sifters for people to sift through the remains of their belongings. He is a man that is focused on others and not focused inward. Truly an outstanding human being! Thank you,Trevor!"👏🏻 For more information on Trevor and his amazing efforts, please read this article in the LA Times:

“I recently met another woman with Multiple Sclerosis who I have really enjoyed chatting with and getting to know. Her name is Kelli, and she's so kind and thoughtful and doing a lot to support others with MS in our community. I'm so inspired her and can't wait to get to know her better!”

"Elizabeth Rose co-authored the incredible compilation titled: From the Fire: Ojai Reflects on the Thomas Fire. She lead the effort to create this masterful, resonating book about the Ojai Community's journey through the Thomas Fire. She funded it, donated all her time (which was many hours, weeks and months!), and donated all net proceeds to the Greater Goods Relief Fund, dedicated to those in the Ojai Valley who have been significantly impacted and have little in the way of support. Elizabeth rose to this immense challenge with beauty, grace, dedication and love, shouldering the grief of all and offering an outlet for our emotions. Her immeasurable kindness has given our community a timeless, unifying, beautiful gift."
