“I have a connection to this land, and it feels right,” says Jennifer. In 2017, the native West Virginian joined Once Upon a Farm, a company that’s dedicated to making organic, cold-pressed blends for kids. She had a vision to convert her beloved family property in Oklahoma into a farm growing fresh fruits and veggies: They’re planning to kick off their first growing season with kale, blueberries, and persimmons. “Getting homemade food in the hands of busy moms is important to me,” says Jennifer.
Once Upon a Farm's promise is something today's busy parents can appreciate: "As fresh as it gets without making it yourself." Each and every ingredient is sustainably grown, certified USDA Organic, and Non-GMO Project Verified. What does that mean? Mom and dad approved. But one of our favorite parts about these fresh-from-the-farm products are that they also taste great. And with names like "The Fairest of Pears" and "Wild Rumpus Avocado" and "Gold-y Mango & the 3 Coconuts" we can assure you that they are also, most importantly, kid-approved too. Once Upon a Farm products are available in three stages, tailored to different age groups, which begins as young as 5-months-old. They've also introduced a made-for-all-ages-applesauce that comes in a variety of flavors, from blueberry to cinnnamon and dates, to "straight from the tree," which is one of our favorites. And that's what we call editor-approved.
