Jacob’s Farm is a 40 acre centennial farm cultivated by artisans who share an unwavering passion for agriculture, wine, food and service.
In 1892 Jacob Witkop acquired the farm after moving to Traverse City from Bierrum Holland. Not long after the farm was passed down to Jacob’s son John and his wife Mary in 1918 where they raised five children. Years later the farm was given to John and Mary’s second son Hiram where he raised four of his own children with his wife Jane.
In 1995 Michael Witkop returned to his family farm with his wife Laverna and purchased the farm from his father Hiram. In an effort to continue the Jacob’s Farm legacy Mike and Laverna launched Jacob’s Farm Enterprises, LLC in early 2008 and created their first corn maze that Fall. In 2020 Jacob’s Farm expanded with the efforts of local entrepreneurs Troy Daily and Nate Crane. The 40 acre estate is now a full service restaurant, bar, event venue in additional to the u-pick orchard and corn maze.
Jacob’s Farm has been owned and operated by the Witkop family since 1892 and is recognized by the State of Michigan’s Historical Commission as a Centennial Farm.
This summer join us for music on the farm.
Luke Winslow-King is a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, producer, and songwriter. His work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll. His alchemical songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from bygone eras producing a sound that is rustic and urbane, elegant and entirely his own.
Winslow-King and an all-star cast of blues, roots, and world music greats, including Roberto Luti, and Charles Hodges (Al Green), cut his seventh full length record, If These Walls Could Talk in Memphis, TN. The new album presents an evolution of the bluesman’s sound that is both reverent and bright. Bearing up unprecedentedly hopeful lyrics is a deep sonic foundation of LWK’s beloved delta blues fused with the high energy midwestern rock that shaped his teenage years in Northern Michigan. Like all of Winslow-King’s work, If These Walls Could Talk continues to propel rugged roots to the vanguard of modern artistic sensibility.
In addition to cutting seven studio records in the last decade, he has toured extensively in North America and Europe, appearing on notable stages such as Austin City Limits, New Orleans JazzFest, Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), Tønder Festival Paradiso (Netherlands), Maverick Festival (UK), and countless more.
