Event Details


Join us for fall outdoor fun, family entertainment, and farm festivities at Jones Family Farms, capped by a private wine tasting at Jones Winery. 

Families are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and take part in awesome farm activities, pumpkin picking in the giant patch, taking fun photos, wagon rides, trying farm fresh goodies, and other “agritainment†activities. 

The Market Yard features farm animals, hayrides, corn maze, fall flowers, fresh apples, and piles of autumn squash and other veggies.  

Celebrate fall and come enjoy classic New England scenery and beautiful fall foliage at the Jones Family Farms. Nestled in the beautiful White Hills of Shelton, Connecticut, it is also home to one of the state’s premier wineries and a featured member of the Connecticut Wine Trail. 

We’ll start at 1:00 pm at Pumpkinseed Hill, which features over 50 varieties of pumpkin! Socializing and mingling will continue during a private hay ride at 2:30 pm around the farm. 

At 4:00 pm, we’ll convene at the Homestead Farm, a short drive away, which is the home of Jones Winery’s tasting room and the location of our own private wine tasting. Homestead Farm is located at 606 Walnut Tree Hill Farm Road, Shelton, CT. 

We thank the host of our event, Jamie Jones, who is a sixth generation farmer and Cornell University alum from Class of 1998.
