Jacobs Heritage Farm is the place to find exceptional honey, eggs, meat and more, with a nod to times and places gone by.

The family farm represents more than just a place for some. It’s a passion that calls to those connected to it. Such a passion drives Jason and Jennifer LittleBear to breathe life back into the farm that gave Jennifer’s great-grandparents a new home a century ago. “It’s genetic,” she says. “I always used to love the farm stories. My family has been farming the same way for a thousand years. It feels more natural to me to be on the farm.”

The house and the barn were built in 1859, and her greatgrandparents, Frank and Agnes Jacobs, bought the place when they emigrated to Copley, Ohio, from Hungary in 1919, at a time when many Eastern Europeans were looking for more promising lives after World War I. They grew what they knew, primarily cucumbers and Hungarian medium-hot block peppers, a staple in the region’s large Hungarian community.

“They farmed like they did in the old country,” Jennifer says. Beyond what they sold, they were self-sufficient and raised whatever else they needed, including bees and chickens.

Her maternal grandparents continued farming, although it changed when her grandfather went to work for the Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. in Akron, as did many in the regional population. “My grandmother did a lot of the farm work since he was working,” Jennifer says. “She was here all the time.”
