Grandy Oats is an independently owned, 100% organic granola company founded in 1979 and based in Brownfield, Maine. With 15 employees, the company makes granola in a 100-year-old dairy barn that was renovated and converted, meeting hygienic standards, to a granola bakery. Its granola products are available primarily on the East Coast, but also in some stores as far west as Minnesota.

Grandy Oats produces only certified organic products. Certified organic products, unlike those labeled “natural,” are required by law to be produced without the use of toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically engineered ingredients and toxic solvents.

Grandy Oats uses only organic ingredients “because we believe we are making our world a better place by using food that was grown in a sustainable way,” says co-owner Nat Peirce.
