farm upstate new york bumble & butter

At bumble & butter, we are devoted to making exceptional granolas and building a stronger community.

Our journey began in 2017 on a college campus in Ithaca, New York, but its story goes back to a few years before. In high school, I gifted jars of granola in experimental flavors to my friends, inspired by the world of culinary innovation I saw in my summer internships at a three Michelin star restaurant. It wasn't until I got to a college campus and was tired of the typical granolas in grocery stores, that I wanted to see something different.
Inspired by farm-to-table, and having an abundance of farmers, artisans, and beekeepers and the like right in front of us, it only made sense to make a granola from ingredients that we deeply cared for. I got into a commercial kitchen, and once again, began crafting the granola of my dreams. Soon enough, word got out across campus and the local community — and so, bumble & butter came to be.
We set out to revive the ordinary granola using better ingredients, and creative flavors outside of the typical maple and cinnamon you'll find crowding grocery shelves. Our promise to you, is to never compromise the integrity of our products. We get out of bed to source our ingredients from the partners we want to work with, to liven the foods we eat on an everyday basis, and to inspire us all to lead better lives— all that, through the humblest form of granola.
We sincerely hope you enjoy!
