Jane Flynn was raised as far from the farm as imaginable and now heads Pacific Farms and Orchards in rural Tehema County.
Jane Flynn was raised as far from the farm as imaginable and landed in rural Tehema County as a young bride.
"I came to Gerber, population 350, from Pacific Palisades and it was a bit of a shock," Jane remembered.
She and her husband, Vincent, were raising six kids on the farm when the tragic death of her beloved spouse occured.
"After his untimely death in 1986, here we were with a large family farm operation and our leader was gone." she said.
With a combination of family, friends, faith and the farming spirit, Jane persevered. Today, along with her sons Brendon and Daniel, Jane heads Pacific Farms and Orchards, which has become a respected olive oil producer.
