Grainless is great
Enjoy a delicious and nutritious modern alternative to traditional granola and snacks. We replaced the oats with sprouted nuts and seeds, easy to digest and full of wonderful nutrients. At last, a 100% grain and gluten free superfood that tastes good too!
Our secret is in the soak
We soak our organic nuts and seeds to break down naturally occurring acids. We then blow warm air over them to create light, crunchy granola bites. One bite and you’ll taste the difference.
How We Make it
- Organic nuts and seeds are soaked and sprouted to enhance their nutritional value, mixed with all natural spices and flavors, and air dried to crunchy perfection.The result is delicious granola and snacks with the highest possible nutritional value.
NUTS & SEEDS
Nuts and seeds are packed with a powerful punch of vitamins, minerals and fats. Nuts are high in fat, low in carbs, and a great source of several nutrients, including vitamin E, magnesium, and selenium.
Sprouting finishes off nature's process of germination. This makes the nutrients in the nuts and seeds more available to our systems and is easier on our digestive system. Sprouting is especially good for people on SCD, Gaps or Paleo AIT diets.
Air drying at a low temperature keeps the nutrients and enzymes alive in the nuts and seeds. Instead of baking at high temperatures, we blow warm air over our product to maintain the nutrient and create a tasty crunch.
Handcrafted in a beautiful valley in Southern California our mission is to create food that you love and that is great for you too.

Enjoying our products will take you back to a time when food was real—when food nourished your body, not harmed it.
FROM THE BEGINNING
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 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 chickens roam free and fruit, vegetables and herbs grow in abundance. It is in this setting where a commitment to good health prevails, that our Grain Free Granola was created.
A NEW EXPERIENCE
It all began in late 2014 with a 30 day commitment to avoid grains.Kelley knew grains and wheat can cause inflammation, so she turned her body into an experiment to see if avoiding them would make a difference for her. Her digestive system improved, and lifelong chronic pain had vanished but Kelley missed her bowl of morning cereal. Kelley took to her kitchen to experiment, trying recipes and learning about nutrition like the benefits of sprouting. In early 2015 Kelley started selling her creations at the Ojai Farmer's Market, as Ojai Granola Girl, and her recipes were well-received. Later that year the name was changed to Lark Ellen Farm. Today her children still sell the Lark Ellen Farm products on Sundays.
