Jackson's Orchard offers wagon rides, hay rides and pick your own fruit in season. They have an excellent grill and have some great fried apple and peach pies. They also have great fruit, vegetables, honey and a large variety of jams and jellies. It is a very relaxing and interesting place to visit.

Don't bother with the hayride, pumpkin patch and corn maze, but the rest of the attractions around the barn are certainly worth the time and money for the kids. The food there is amazing - make sure you're hungry when you go! Great family activities.

I hadn't been in a few years, but we had family in for a visit & Jackson's Orchard was a favorite of theirs as a youngster, so we went on an Oct weekend. NEVER AGAIN!!!! 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

If you have a few minutes that you can spare off the interstate then definitely head for Jackson's. There are alrge brown signs that will help guide you from the interstate to the orchard. 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
