Imagine Disneyland without the rides, paved parking or fast pass! People were EVERYWHERE! It was bumper to bumper going up the steep hill & then... More

We took my niece and her 1 year old along with a friend. It used to be a lot of fun but we had not gone in a few years. It was so overcrowded that you had to stand in line for everything. The parking was a nightmare. They had cleared a field as extra parking, and although they had... More

I love going to Jackson. Enjoy going with my family to the petting zoo and to the children's activities. It's also a good place to run to during lunch time for a quick bite and lunch in the Sun. It has gotten a little more expensive over the past couple of years but still affordable with the food for the... More

My family and I have been coming to Jackson's since I can remember. For a while, in Middle school, my class went every year. I never appreciated those times until I got older. Now I remember fondly and yearn for the smaller hay rides and lines! My boyfriend and I visited during Pumpkin fest this year and I wish we... More

According to the statistics there are more than 7000 tree, pumpkin patches and other produce on this property. It is neat and clean. You can also... More

Jackson’s has been in operations for over 50 years and they get better and better, year after year. (My family has a tradition of visiting Jackson’s Orchard every fall. The orchard is great... More

Love this place. Kids have a ball on the swings and huge slide. Petting zoo is fun for all ages. You can feed the animals as well. Be sure and save room for the fried pies and ice cream. We go every fall when the grandchildren are in town.
