Early Bird dishes out wholesome old-fashioned goodness by baking their granola in tiny batches and using the three most integral ingredients at a cook’s disposal: olive oil, salt and love. Each crunchy-salty-sweet mouthful is slow roasted until it sings in perfect snacking harmony. By the handful, spoonful, or bagful, Early Bird granola serves up a tasty and toothsome treat. In 2008, Nekisia Davis started baking, bagging, and selling her own granola at local markets like the Brooklyn Flea and Early Bird Foods & Co. was hatched.

After selling out their first trial batch in a single day, the two friends moved out of their tiny commissary kitchen and into a larger Kosher bakery in Brooklyn to take their unleavened show on the road.
