Few things muster the thought of fall more than diving into piles of leaves, devouring plate after plate of fresh-baked apple pie, and jumping ahead of the grocery checkout line with the help of a flaming pumpkin hat. Celebrate the savory season with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two all-access passes to Jaemor Farms in Alto (a $24 value). This Groupon is valid on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from Friday October 7 to Sunday, November 6, 2011. Two all access passes include admission to the eight acre corn maze, a hayride, and admission to three of the following activities:
- the kiddie maze.
- hand-pump duck races.
- rides on the farm slide.
- the apple-throwing apparatus.
Jaemor Farms' autumn aficionados usher in the season of crunching leaves with family adventures on their produce farm, with family activities including an eight-acre corn maze and a tractor pulled hayride. Search for apple shaped clearings in the labyrinthine maize maze while learning little known historical facts about the inventor of said fruit – Johnny Appleseed. A gentle hayride around the farm grants visitors picturesque views of bountiful harvests and ample opportunities to nourish gaunt scarecrows. Additional happenings include trips down the mammoth farm slide, explorations through the kiddie maze, hand-pump duck races, and target practice with the chosen defense of most bakeries – the apple-throwing apparatus. On Fridays and Saturdays, the farm is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., though optional activities do not commence until 4 p.m. on Fridays. Visitors under the age of three can explore the corn maze and ride atop hay free of charge, though further farm fun will garner a small fee.
After an afternoon of seasonally appropriate brain and body calisthenics, guests can spread a picnic blanket and feast on fried apple pies, boiled peanuts, homemade ice cream, or fare provided by Sweet House Barbeque, though the cost of food is not included in this Groupon. Guests can also frolic through the pumpkin patch or produce market. Evening maze trekkers should bring their own flashlight or a well-trained flock of lightening bugs.
