|Jane was raised in Pacific Palisades, in Los Angeles, California. She was about as far removed from agriculture as possible until she moved to Gerber, California, as a young bride. Mrs. Flynn raised six children on the farm before becoming a “farmer by default” after her husband’s untimely death in a plane accident in 1986. She felt a responsibility to the men who worked for her husband and her family to keep Pacific Farms going. In the years since Mr. Flynn’s death, Pacific Farms has continued to innovate, and Mrs. Flynn credits the success to the farm’s experienced management team.
