Oh, hello there!
You're wondering who we are? Where we come from? Well, it's a pretty great story :)
Once upon a time, in 2008, Nekisia Davis was running a famous pizza restaurant in Brooklyn, NY and one night after work she found herself dreaming of a better granola to brighten her breakfast experience. The following morning, totes in hand, she stocked up on granola ingredients at her local Co-Op and headed home to create a batch of granola that would change the world (the world of granola, that is).
Her friends and co-workers were WOWed by the taste and, voila! Early Bird Foods & Co. was hatched. It didn't take long for Nekisia's innovative + delicious granola to garner fans in high places. Martha Stewart was among the first (check this out!) then the New York Times' Melissa Clark, then Rob & Robin at New York Magazine, then all of everyone everywhere. Even Daniel Humm, chef from the 3 Michelin star restaurant Eleven Madison Park, borrowed her Farmhand's Choice recipe for the EMP house granola!
Over 13 years in business and growing strong, Early Bird Foods & Co. remains the VERY BEST granola on offer anywhere fine cereals are sold. Woo woo!
Early Bird is WOMAN & QUEER OWNED and OPERATED and damn proud of it!
Nekisia is a Cancer who enjoys long walks in the park with her pup Ruby, cooking dinner for friends at her home in Brooklyn, and swimming at Jacob Riis Beach. Oh, and she loooooooves to sing Kate Bush songs at max volume when she thinks no one is listening.
