Our Story



We are the Carvalho 'Ohana, the face behind Wailua Granola Co. & The Granola House.  My husband and I were born and raised on the island of Kaua'i and have three beautiful children together, La'iku, Kailea and Likeke (15, 14 & 3)- yes, we waited a LONG time for our third and final blessing =)

In our spare time, we enjoy going to the beach, trying new local places to eat and traveling and making mo'olelo's.  I especially enjoy watching my kids do what they love which include soccer, hula, Tae Kwon Do and paddling.

Mahalo for getting to know us and supporting our growing business through purchases, recommendations and likes on social media!  

It does not go unnoticed and really makes our day!


Mahalo nui,

When you think of the word  'granola', what comes to mind?

Oats blended with a variety of nuts and seeds? Or maybe oats and toasted coconut drizzled with honey?

In 2017, Taleea, baker and owner, created a granola blend to gift to friends and family for Christmas which became a frequent request thereafter.  She and her family frequently enjoy acai bowls and could not find a granola that they all enjoyed, so she decided to bake her own.

Wailua Granola Co. was established in March of 2020, at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Taleea baked granola for friends and family during this time and created a small side hustle which quickly grew into retail sales, becoming a vendor at various markets on Kaua'i and wholesale!

Wailua Granola Co. focuses on using organic, gluten free and local ingredients as much as possible- this includes fresh Kaua'i grown coconut which is hand processed weekly and sourcing raw local honey from a Kaua'i beekeeper.  

Use Wailua Granola Co. granola on açaí bowls, yogurt parfaits or by itself for a fresh, yummy snack on the go!
