Jenny Marrs Pours Prayer into Berry Farms With Mission-Minded Goal

By Movieguide® Contributor

FIXER TO FABULOUS star Jenny Marrs gave fans an update on her family’s Bentonville Berry Farm, the blueberry farm her family runs to help raise profits for Help One Now

“I’ve lost track of the laps we’ve prayed and walked (while pushing a stroller, or wearing a baby or running or riding a bike) around the fields at @theberryfarm_bentonville over the years,” Marrs captioned a shot of the whole family. 

“Last week, we prayed in the fields for this year’s Berry Fest and for our dear friends doing the hard work in Zimbabwe,” she continued. “We prayed for this farm to be a place of refuge and peace and light in our community. We prayed for the families who would join us and for the families across the globe who will be impacted because of our little farm tucked away in the Ozarks.

“And, this past Friday and Saturday, we opened the fields once again for berry picking and live music and dancing among the fireflies. It was everything we dreamt it would be and more. Friends from near and far gathered on this soil that has bold prayers and big dreams burrowed deep within.”

“What a wild, unbelievable thing this is. The work isn’t easy but it is absolutely worth it. I love that we get to do this and am so grateful for everyone who has joined us on this ride,” Marrs concluded. 

 

Marrs has been keeping fans and followers updated on the family’s work at the Berry Farm.

FIXER TO FABULOUS star Jenny Marrs recently shared a sweet video of her family spending time on their farm, from picking blueberries to taking care of their cows. 

“Checking the fields each evening, pulling weeds, and picking berries has been the framework for our kiddo’s summers for the past seven years,” Jenny shared. “They jump in and work right alongside us. It’s a beautiful privilege to be able to work as a family to create delicious food and to cultivate a space for our community to gather and experience a slice of farm life.”

Her caption continued:

This small blueberry farm has taught us that we can all DO something bigger than ourselves. The ripple effect of these fields reaches farther than we ever anticipated. It isn’t easy but it IS simple: profits from our u-pick farm in NW Arkansas benefit a farm training program for orphaned teens in Marondera, Zimbabwe.

This farm is one of the legacy’s Dave and I want to pass down to our children. We want them to value hard work and nature and, most of all, generosity. We want them to understand that it’s never “us” and “them.” It’s not “here” and “there.” We have had shared meals with our Zimbabwean leaders at their table and at ours. We have become dear friends who do life together as best we can across a sea. We hold them close in prayer and we have hopefully shown our kiddos that even though we live in different countries, with different cultures and foods and languages and looks, we are united in our humanity and our desire to run the race set before us well. With so much division in our world today, we pray these experiences will allow our kids to rise up as world changers and light bearers for their generation.
