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.
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.
