ABOUT THE FARMERS
Doug Moser: Doug was born and raised on the family farm, and has spent his entire life tending to his family’s farming legacy. He, too, married his high school sweetheart, Pat, in 1972. Pat is from the small town of Wilmot in southern Noble County, but joined Doug on the farm when they married. Their two children, Andy and Carrie, became the second generation born and raised on MCJ Farm.
Together, Bud and Doug watched their family farm evolve over the years into the successful organization it is today. While Doug, Jeff, and Corey make decisions regarding the outlook and direction of the farm as a team, Doug is now enjoying semi- retirement, and he and Pat spend their winters in Arizona.
Jeff Jacobs: Jeff was born and raised on a family farm as well, though a bit further away than the Moser’s farm. However, after marrying his high school sweetheart, Dawn, they made their way to Millersburg, IN to farm. There they had their son, Corey, who is now part of the family farming business as well. Jeff began working for Bud and Doug on their farm in 1995, and became partners with Doug the following year. And thus MCJ, Inc was formed! Jeff is in charge of breeding and gestation, as well as the farms day-to-day decisions with Doug and Corey, but in his spare time he can be found riding his Harley wherever the road takes him.
Corey Jacobs: Corey was born and raised on a farm, so farming is pretty much in his blood. After graduating from West Noble in 2005, Corey returned to the family farm in 2006 and became partners with Jeff and Doug in 2012. He married his high school sweetheart, Taya, in 2008, and they are currently raising their two children, Jake and Cole, on the family farm.
Corey is in charge of finishing the hogs on the farm, and is the designated “techie” behind the farm. He enjoys adding new technology and electronics to the farm’s operations, and he works with Doug and Jeff on the day-to-day decisions for the farm.
Brett Jacobs: Brett is Jeff’s nephew, and he joined the family farm in 2015. After graduating from high school, Brett trained as a chef and worked at Elcona Country Club prior to coming to work on the farm. He married his wife, Allison, in 2020 and they are expecting their first child in March, 2021. Brett is responsible for farrowing on the farm.
