Tierra Farm is an independent company that offers a certified organic granola product. The company 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.

They write: Tierra Farm is a small, privately-owned, certified organic producer and roasting company in upstate New York. We maintain a diversified organic vegetable farm in the Finger Lakes region of New York state, but specialize in nut and seed roasting and dried fruits. At Tierra Farm, we strive for A+ quality in all of our products.

As true believers in organic foods as a way to nurture the land and the body, we only handle and sell certified organic products — and we make no exceptions! All of our roasting, mixing and flavoring is conducted in-house, at our certified organic, peanut-free roasting and processing facility.

The nut, seed and dried fruit portion of the business was originally an attempt to create a source of income for the winter. That winter job has become a thriving year-around business, thanks to our tasty product selection and a reliable and energetic staff with an eye for quality.
