Cornell Club of Fairfield County: Visit to Jones Family Farms & Winery
October 29, 2016 @ 3:00 pm
Bring the family for a fall festival at Cornellian Jones Family Farms & Winery!
Join us for the UNICEF family festival at The Jones Family Farms, and stay after for wine tasting at the Winery.
Fall is a festive time at The Jones Family Farms. Come to celebrate the harvest season at the beautiful Pumpkinseed Hill Farm. Bright orange pumpkins lie nestled amongst hay and green vines, ready to be harvested and carried home.
The Market Yard features farm animals, hayrides, corn maze, fall flowers, fresh apples and piles of autumn squash. A special UNICEF Family Festival during the last weekend before Halloween features games and children’s activities all benefiting a worthy cause.
Nestled in the beautiful White Hills of Shelton, Connecticut, it is also home to one of the state’s premier wineries. Connecticut Magazine in 2010, 2011 and 2012 named the Jones Winery to have the Best Connecticut Wine and 2013 Best Connecticut Vineyard
We’ll start at 3:30 pm at Pumpkinseed Hill, enjoy the family festival at The Market Yard, followed by a hay ride at 4:00 pm.
At 5:00 pm we’ll take the short drive to Homestead Farm, home to Jones Winery tasting room, for our own private wine tasting.
Cost is $10 for the wine tasting and $2.50 for the hay ride.
