Patricia fondly remembers her childhood on this farm, a place filled with love and hard work. The land has been in her family for generations, starting in 1936 when her parents bought it with just $700. Her father, a World War I veteran, didn’t even own a car. To see the land they wanted to buy, they had to hire someone to drive them there. The farm was modest, with just a two-room house and 20 acres, but it also held a piece of history—a Native American cemetery.

Patricia recalls a story of her father, who spent a whole day negotiating over $20 before finally buying the land. It was a simple time, without modern comforts like running water or indoor plumbing, but it was full of love and dedication.

Over the years, as family members grew up and moved away, the farm changed hands several times among relatives. Then, in 2017, Jennifer Garner decided to buy the farm herself. She didn’t just want to preserve her family’s memories; she wanted to breathe new life into the land.

Jennifer teamed up with her uncle Robert and aunt Janet, former owners of the farm, to revive it. The farm hadn’t been planted in 40 years, but Jennifer was determined to restore its glory. She remembered how her mother and siblings used to farm pecans, lettuce, radishes, and potatoes.

To make her dream a reality, Jennifer co-founded “Once Upon a Farm” with Ari Raz, John Foraker, and Cassandra Curtis. Their mission was to grow organic fruits and vegetables to create nutritious food for children. Jennifer envisioned a world where busy moms could easily provide their little ones with healthy meals, reducing the stress of mealtime.
