This year marks the 27th Anniversary of the Jones family selling pumpkins at their Pumpkinseed Hill farm at 120 Beardsley Road. Over the years, they have been able to donate over $100,000 to UNICEF thanks to this yearly festival.
Guests to the pumpkin fields will join the farmers in celebrating one of our favorite pumpkin themes: The World of OZ! You may even see some of your favorite characters working in the pumpkin patch that weekend!
Entertainment will take place on the Munchkin-land stage and includes a musical performance from Shelton’s CenterStage Theater Teen Cabaret on Saturday at 2pm. Also, pig and chicken feeding demonstrations and story-times throughout both days.
As usual, guests will be able to choose from over 50 varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds grown on the Jones farm. The hayrides will be running and weather permitting the corn maze will be open too.
The ever-popular All-You-Can-Carry special is also in place. Guests will pay only $33 for all the pumpkins they can carry across the finish line. This year, the Jones Farmers have included white pumpkins, specialty pumpkins and even their eye-catching GIANT pumpkins in the deal. It’s always fun to stand by the line and cheer on the strong men and women at the pumpkin patch.
Jones Family Farms is open daily through Halloween, 10:00am – 5:30pm (4pm close on the 31st). Directions and more information about Jones Family Farms can be found on JonesFamilyFarms.com or by calling Farmer Jones’ crop report number (203) 929-8425.
