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.

If you're looking for a nice place to sit and sip a glass of wine on a lovely patio overlooking the vineyards, you will not be disappointed. They have a nice tasting room with plenty of room at the bar, and cute little tables for sitting outside. They sell local cheese and sausage (or chocolate) if you're looking for a little nosh to go with your wine. The white wines are quite good, and they have some interesting berry infused concoctions if that's your thing. We're about to go into pumpkin season next week!

What more could you ask for on a sunny summer day? Went with my family and had loads of fun picking blueberries, followed by purchasing the freshest veggies and finished that off with a purchase of their sparkling strawberry and grape wine. This I a CT "must do" in the summer!

This is a great place to cut your own Christmas tree or pick strawberries. Great friendly service. The strawberries were great this year. Thee is also a small family winery run by Jamie Jones. The wine is good. The farm is most famous for cut your own Christmas trees. It can be a long hike to find the one you want. some folks make it a tailgate party and eat and drink as part of the experience.
