Jones Family Farms, nestled in the White Hills of Shelton, with its 19th century dairy barn and homestead farmhouse, impresses the visitor as a peaceful and relaxed living environment. The beautiful countryside with its orderly rows of Christmas trees, neat stonewalls, and well-maintained fields are the result of efforts by seven generations of Jones family farmers. The farmers of the 400-acre working farm invite families to visit and harvest seasonal crops. Presently under cultivation are 200 acres of Christmas trees, 15 acres of strawberries, 15 acres of blueberries, and 25 acres of pumpkins, gourds and squash. The Jones farmers harvest these crops from three different farm locations known as the Homestead Farm, the Valley Farm, and Pumpkinseed Hill. The farm also manages 50 acres of hay land and 50 acres of woodlots. Over five acres of grapes are in production for the farm's winery.

Annual outing to pick apples with family. Aside from picking, they have a nice general store. Nice outing for the kids. Quite a drive from where we live.

im most definately not a farm person but my 4 year old was invited to a birthday party here and absolutely loved it. talked about it for months wanting to go back. they got to see the animals up close and even touch and feed some of them.

you can also buy icecream there. i didnt sample it but judging by the crowd it must be pretty good!

I went with my family to the winery and farm. They offered wine tasting. Kids were able to play in a room in the back. Good service. I would go again.

Farmer Jones is a great guy and is community minded. He contributes greatly to making CT a better place.
