Open every day from Monday, October 1, through Halloween, the corn maze envelopes visitors in a labyrinth of stalks that, from a bird’s-eye view, form the scene of a werewolf hovering over a tombstone. Other seasonal activities range from face painting and concessions to hayrides behind an antique tractor. Under the eerie light of the weekend’s waning gibbous, the hayride transforms into a spooky trek through the farm.
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.
