They are industries he knows from the ground up having been born into a family that has been in horticulture and agriculture for several generations.

Jacob’s credentials are hard to beat and his lifelong passion for the rural market is obvious.

Having bought his first house at 20 years old and having built his own home at 30, Jacob knows not only the land, but also what might be done with it.
