Henderson Jacobs Honey Kolsch - Now Available!
Essex County was a destination on the famous Underground Railroad. Henderson's and Jacobs, two former slave families, crossed the Great Lakes together to gain freedom, settling on their own 2nd and 3rd concession Gosfield Township properties. Hiram Walker rented rail line rights of way across Black owned farms to Paradise Grove, purchased their crops for his distillery and hired them to work at the Mettawas Hotel. Carving out a new life was hard, but rewarding. The Henderson’s, George and Catherine, were UGRR Conductors helping “The Black Thread in the Canadian Tapestry” settle in. Jacobs Farms produced honey. Jack Miner School is located on their former farmland. Henderson Jacobs is a honey-based brew that frees your senses and satisfies your palate.
