Stacy Family Farm has a long history that dates back to 1899; when Albert and Lina Frost Stacy purchased a farm outside of Marietta for $2,400. During this time, the farm was used for mainly dairy production and orchards. Merle and Wilma Stacy were the next generations to run the farm, followed by Ralph and Joan Stacy. Ralph and Joan had three children, Bill, Beth, and Bruce. Together, they expanded the farm and focused on producing crops that could be shipped to larger cities.
Bill and Janet Stacy, along with children Amanda, Todd, and Tyler, are the current generations on the farm. While the kids all have grown and are pursuing careers, they are still around to help on the farm when needed. Amanda went into agricultural law, Todd graduated from Ohio State ATI and still farms and Tyler is a welder.
Bill and Janet began selling strawberries on the farm in Oak Grove in 1995. Since then, they have purchased the ODNR State Tree Nursery in Reno, Ohio, where they are currently growing and selling strawberries, blueberries, pumpkins and sunflowers as well as other produce.
