Once Upon A Farm

Have you guys heard about Once Upon A Farm? It’s the first fresh, refrigerated HPP baby food sold in pouches. Their HPP technique uses cold-pressured organic whole foods from local farms. They do not use concentrates, processed purees, or preservatives like many other shelf stable pouches. They sell their pouches online and ship them straight to your door. How great is that? We were invited to lunch at Cafe Gratitude in Little Italy to learn all about Once Upon A Farm’s products and get a tasting for ourselves. Their flavors are so yummy and SUPER fresh!

It had been a little while since I had been to a media lunch and was very exited to take my little guy on a lunch date. He was so good and slept most of the time. At the time of the lunch (a couple months back) he was just starting solids so I hadn’t yet introduced him to all the fruits yet. Since the luncheon, he has tried their two 5+ month pouches and LOVES the flavors!

They currently have 10 flavors:

Magic Velvet Mango
The Fairest of Pears
Oh My Mega Veggie
Wild Rumpus Avocado
Mama Bear Blueberry
Green Kale and Apples
Strawberry Patch
Carrot-Y Coconut-Y Quinoa
Just Right Porridge
Chocolate Ever After

The flavors in bold were my absolute favorite! They really all actually tasted good but I would seriously grab one of these flavors myself and eat it. The wild rumpus avocado is made with pineapple + mint and is SO refreshing and delicious! 

We each ordered a dish and a drink from Cafe Gratitude, as we listened to the sweet owners of Once Upon a Farm explain their company. Cafe Gratitude serves up pure organic plant based food. The pizza I ordered was very tasty and I’d love to head back to try a few other items.  

We brought a few pouches home and the little guy devoured The Fairest of Pears. 

If you’re interested in trying out Once Upon a Farm for yourself, simply order online and you will have fresh goodies waiting at your doorstep.

We attended a media event and received samples. All opinions are my own. 


I love sharing about family, food and fun in and around San Diego! Enjoy, Bri
