Nuts About Granola was conceived through a mother and daughter who shared a passion for cooking together. Gayle and Sarah’s love for the kitchen and a deep understanding of the importance of nutrition developed a treat to help them refuel during various athletic events. This snack, granola, was made fresh, using local ingredients from the Pennsylvania farm belt. As both a student at Elizabethtown College and captain of the school’s triathlon team, Sarah decided to package and sell their granola on campus as a team fundraiser. Sarah’s entrepreneurial spirit combined with the tremendous success of the “Original Trio” flavors (Plain Jane, Lovers Combo, and College Staple) during this fundraiser led Gayle and Sarah to begin taking steps toward building a legitimate business. Nuts About Granola, llc. was incorporated in the Spring of 2008 and built on the foundation of providing the freshest products from local resources to consumers.
Nuts About Granola has grown leaps and bounds from our humble beginnings, however all of our branded granolas are still produced in small batches and mixed by hand to ensure quality. Currently, the Nuts About Granola product line is largely sold in farmers markets in the South-Central PA region and online. In addition to being granola fanatics, we’ve become huge supporters of the Buy Fresh, Buy Local movement to help achieve the ultimate in freshness. All of our products contain only all natural and organic ingredients, with an emphasis on local, which has earned us the “PA Preferred” seal by from Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
Our expansion plans focus on spreading our handmade granola throughout the Mid-Atlantic region with the help of our partnership with the Susquehanna Association for the Blind and Vision Impaired. While we are hoping to continue to grow our company as any good business would, we promise to uphold our core values of providing fresh granola, using quality ingredients, with a level of customer service and personable appeal no other granola can provide.
