  • About

    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. 

    StoneFolk is an all Americana Folk-Rock/Trucker Funk band emerging from the backroads and waterways of Lower-Northwestern Michigan. Born on the run April 2019, singer/songwriter Aaron Dye and bassist/sousaphonist Kevin LaRose collaborated musical minds to embark on a sonic odyssey across the globe. Later in 2021 expanded the sound with the addition of drummer/Crooner Skylar Mclain, creating their unique combination of swooning vocals, outrageous dancing sousaphone marches, and solid tight-knit beats culminating into a sound all their own. The group's influences range from outlaw-trucker/funk to indie-rock/jazz and R&B, inspired by legendary bands like Little Feat, Gram Parsons and the Fallen Angels, The Wood Brothers, and The Meters.
