May Day Heyday

This week marks two important milestones for . Read on to find out how YOU can help us celebrate.

First, we are celebrating the two-year anniversary of the official launch of . Yep, that’s right folks. Just two short years ago, I was a girl with a comfy corporate paycheck – an ambitious and aspiring home cook who set out to whip up a healthy, tasty snack for her guy to take to work.  Little did I realize how that one recipe would change my life!

Before I started selling at the Overland Park Farmers Markets, I honestly viewed the endeavor as a hobby – a creative, feel-good outlet from my career as a loan workout specialist, commercial mortgage foreclosure extraordinaire and general stealer of dreams. Two years later, Granola is available in nearly 50 retail stores, including Dean & Deluca and Whole Foods. And while we certainly have not yet overcome every obstacle that a start-up company faces, we have overcome many and I believe the fact that we’re still in business is a testament to our viability and core values – not to mention our badass granola. Onward!

Second, we are kicking off the 2012 farmers market season this weekend. This year we’ll be participating in not one, not two, but THREE markets in the Kansas City-area. Granola mavens Lexie and Lauren will be out-and-about each weekend from May through September with plenty of the world’s best granola, including all of your old favorites as well as some new flavors (look for one to make its debut this weekend!) and *gasp* maybe even a prototype of the long-awaited, much-anticipated Granola Bar.

Enough about us. Here’s where you come in. This weekend only, to celebrate the aforementioned awesomely outrageous milestones and as an expression of our genuine and heartfelt gratitude for your support over the last two years, we will be offering a special promotion to our farmers market customers. For every $20 spent on products at any of the three markets, you will receive a FREE organic cotton tote bag. These bags are super sturdy – perfect for stashing your fresh fruit and veggie finds – not to mentioned super cool. Honestly, this is a pretty sweet deal so I hope you’ll take us up on the offer. We will also be handing out goofy birthday hats, if that’s your thing. We will not, however, be donning our birthday suits. Maybe next year.
