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. Even the earliest inhabitants, the Chumash Native Americans, recognized the unique healing and rejuvenating powers of this special place. Over the years both young and old have found their way to this serene town just a few miles from the sea near Santa Barbara. At the east end of the valley lies Lark Ellen Farm, a small farm where fresh organic eggs come from healthy and free ranging chickens. Fruit, vegetables and herbs grow in abundance in rich organic soil. It is in this setting, 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 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 amazing! My digestive system improved, and some lifelong chronic pain was gone! I never wanted to go back to grains. This was a big deal for a grain addict like myself! I began to experiment with new ingredients, and that is how our Grain Free Granola Bites were created.
Our grain free granola products are made from sprouted nuts and seeds and are lovingly made in small batches. No fillers, additives or grains of any kind are used. We sprout and dehydrate the ingredients at a low temperature in order to preserve the nutrition and flavors, while also making them more easily digestible. Enjoying our products will take you back to a time when food was real, when eating nourished your body, not harmed it. Join me on my journey to good health!
