Annie Mame - Six Generations of Jones’ Have Kept The Farm Running

Think about it. Six generations of Jones have tended to this beautiful acreage in Shelton, Connecticut.

Much of the state knows the Jones Family Farms as a place to grab your pumpkins for Halloween, or strawberries and blueberries and to cut your own Christmas tree.

The x-mas tree biz started out as a 4-H project in 1947, see what can happen?

Each year about 12,000 trees are cut by families from around the region and taken home to be adorned, but that’s not all that is going on here on these 400 acres of lusciousness, not by a long shot.

Did you know that you can take cooking classes in their brand new building called The Harvest Kitchen?

Twelve at a time gather fresh ingredients from the farm and then learn how to cook it up into something scrumptious. An example; asparagus ice cream.

Be good to the land and the land will be good to you.

Philip James JONES, FARM FOUNDER, 1821-1912
