During spring at Jones Orchard, families gather to bound through the territory’s rows of fruit, peeling back leaves to get at the ripest morsels hidden deep within the thicket. Since growing their first peaches more than seven decades ago, the Jones family continues to ripen juicy varieties of peaches, strawberries, and other fruit on their 600-acre farm, eschewing long-distance produce shipping for local distribution, mostly available at farmer’s markets and during the orchard’s pick-your-own fruit season. Inviting families to pick fruit together is one of many ways the Jones family lures visitors to their orchard seasonally—come autumn, the farmers transform the fields into a vast corn maze. Visitors not content to wander the idyllic grounds can enjoy the orchard’s bounty at the Country Café, where matriarch Juanita Jones flavors her fresh pies and preserves with fresh-plucked fruits.

For more than 30 years, two brothers and their sister have cultivated 1910 Frame Works' immense cache of elegant frames, earning them loyal patronage from local clientele such as the Memphis Redbirds, Rock 'n' Soul Museum, and the Special Olympics. Their support throughout the decades is due to the trio’s commitment to stay abreast of blossoming trends and technology. Partnered with a national web of suppliers, they keep their showroom full of ornate and minimalist frames in thousands of colors, textures, and scratch-and-sniff scents. They also forge shadowboxes and custom frames onsite, harnessing conservation-quality glass and acid-free materials to assemble elegant confines for artwork, photography, and mirrors.

When they're not constructing frames, the skilled craftspeople rove the town to deliver and install their elegant creations and hold on-location design consultations that can help to determine suitable artwork for a specific space. They also curate their own gallery of colorful artwork, including local music-festival posters and prints crafted by local artists.

Leave the mowing to the optimally primed lawn transformers that are heavy on power and surprisingly light on explosions and finally show that inefficient neighborhood boy how lawn care is done (typically $40 for a quarter-acre lot). If you're losing beachballs, babies, and venture capital in a backyard nest of weeds, have a three-man crew swim through the shrubbery pruning, bed cleaning, and weeding to beautify your outdoor areas ($90/hour). Allow the experts to tuck plants into beds, hang flowering baskets ($20 per piece), or install plants as large as 3 gallons (four-plant minimum, $100 total).

Cedar Hill Farm Paintball Park arms its guests with a gun, an air tank, a face mask, a 200-round hopper, and 500 rounds of splattering ammunition to defend humanity against the sinister forces of boredom. Sporting seven separate courses over 14 acres of park, Cedar Hill can accommodate large-scale battles and special-forces strikes in the Woods, Ambush, or Bunker Hill courses, and anyone looking for high-frequency action can test their trigger fingers on one of the farm’s speedball courses. Because war has no rules, except for a few necessary ones for safety, battle pacing and game types are left up to the players themselves, though Cedar Hill estimates that players can clean out their clips in two or three hours and are happy to suggest favorite scenarios for squads who’ve come up short.
