Five years ago, when Munroe Dairy President Rob Armstrong wanted to create a tasty granola that would dance beautifully with Munroe’s farm-fresh milk, his PR director Maureen Maloney stepped up to the plate, er, bowl. Neither had any idea that Sacred Cow Granola would now be sold in 40 markets up and down the New England coast, plus on Amazon! Maloney’s attention to the demands of her taste buds, sharpened by trips to India (thus, the crystallized ginger and a secret spice mix), her desire to use super-healthy ingredients (three kinds of nuts; three kinds of seeds) and local products (New England maple syrup and Massachusetts-grown dried cranberries) and her chef consultations have produced a granola that is, in Maloney’s words, “never bland or boring, with just the right crunch.” They now have a half-dozen employees at Hope & Main, where the granola is produced, who bake and bottle the granola (in glass Mason jars) and who come from the Amos House Culinary Education project or The Cookie Place Food Service Training Program.
