David and Miriam Cooper began Cooper’s Mill in 1969 alongside their Bucyrus home with just a picnic table and a desire to share their homegrown fruits and vegetables with others. Nearly 45 wonderful years have passed and the Cooper's tradition continues – only under the new ownership and management of brothers Jason & Justin McMullen. The McMullens continue to produce the same high quality, homemade jams, jellies and apple butter which customers have become accustomed to and love using the same recipes that have been passed down for generations.
What makes Cooper's Mill products so different from the rest? Our irresistible apple butter is cooked slowly in 50-gallon copper kettles over a wood fire, and our delicious jams and jellies are made in small batches using so that the best flavor and consistency is obtained every time. We never use any artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. All Cooper's Mill products are proudly made in Bucyrus, OH using our own original recipes.
