Few things say fall like diving into piles of leaves, devouring slices of fresh-baked apple pie, and jumping ahead of the grocery checkout line with the help of a flaming pumpkin hat. Celebrate the season with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two all-access passes to Jaemor Farms in Alto, located just north of Gainesville (a $24 value). This Groupon is valid Friday–Sunday from Sunday, September 18, to Sunday, November 6. Each pass includes admission to the 8-acre corn maze, a hayride, and three of the following activities:
- The kiddie maze
- Hand-pump duck races
- Rides on the farm slide
- The apple sling shot
Visitors younger than 3 can enter the farm, explore the corn maze, and ride atop hay free of charge, though further fun will garner a small fee.
Jaemor Farms' autumn aficionados unite families with fresh air and colorful leaves through a cornucopia of seasonal activities, from scoots through an 8-acre corn maze to snoozes during relaxing tractor-pulled hayrides. The labyrinthine maize maze asks ambitious guests to search for apple-shaped clearings and the back to a great aunt's earring, and gentle hayrides grant 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 weapon of most bakers—¬¬the apple sling shot.

After an afternoon of brain and body calisthenics, guests can spread a picnic blanket and feast on fried apple pies, boiled peanuts, house-made 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 to stock up on tasty souvenirs. Evening maze trekkers should bring their own flashlight or a well-trained flock of lightening bugs.
