The Amazing American PecanA member of the hickory family, the Pecan tree grows over 100 feet tall and bears nuts for more than 300 years. The pecan is the state nut of Alabama, the state tree of Texas and the only nut native to North America (aside from Lucille Ball and Abbott & Costello).Breakfast AmericanaProducing maple syrup is the oldest agricultural enterprise in North America; the cultivation of pecans in the Deep South dates back to pre-Colonial times. We've combined these classic American flavors with crunchy oat clusters to create a truly scrumptious granola. Nutritious whole rolled oats give you energy and fiber to start the day right, while velvety rich pecans contain protein that provides the essential amino acids needed to aid in the building & maintenance of body tissues. With NO preservatives, artificial flavors or colors, and ingredients grown and made without GMOs, this naturally sweet granola is a purely delicious way to start the day. The Story of GranolaFact is stranger than fiction!In the mid-1800's, Dr. Sylvester Graham, of Graham Cracker fame, promoted his wholegrain wheat flour bread for its high nutritional value. Shortly after, Dr. James Jackson created the world's first breakfast cereal by baking the graham flour into dense wholegrain nuggets—dubbed "Granula"—that had to be soaked overnight to be edible. Enter Dr. John Harvey Kellogg who, in 1876, created his own version of granula, which he called "Granola." Then Charles W. Post got into the act with a similar formula known as "Grape Nuts."The popularity of granola soon waned, to be revived nearly 100 years later along with a renewed interest in wholegrain food. That's when we dished out fifty bucks for baking equipment and a secret granola recipe. Today, Sweet Home Farm offers simple wholesome goodness in delicious traditional granola in a variety of flavors. Try them all! Great as a Snack Down-Home, Baked Goodness!
