“The Echols family at Jaemor Farms has been harvesting crops from this land for 104 years.”
From family farm to roadside peach stand, Jaemor Farms has satisfied locals and passerbys alike, remaining a staple stop of North Georgia for its homegrown produce, offering United States specialties such as muscadines and scuppernongs, and of course… sweet Georgia peaches. They describe themselves as “a local family business, providing locally grown food, in a local growing and learning environment” proving themselves as the ideal spot for a family outing that supports healthy living, your local community, and reminds you that enjoying the simple things in life is even better with family by your side.
“During the past 35 years Jaemor Farms has experienced numerous transitions and has grown to meet the demand of” their “customer base,” now offering “homemade jam, jellies, ice-cream, baked items and boiled peanuts.” The farm has also transitioned into the agritourism industry, making every visitor’s experience even more interactive than before, offering something for everyone: kids, adults, families, and even couples. On designated “U-Pick Days,” guests to the farm can pick their own strawberries, peaches, apples, or pumpkins or enroll in a “how to” class teaching attendees such skills as canning for apple butter. Jaemor farms also offers classic fall activities on site. Their Jurassic themed corn maze is open now through November 6th and their pumpkin patch will be opening in October (patience, my friends). These events are located at their farm in Alto, Georgia, however, customers can still enjoy their products at their market-only location in Commerce, Georgia.
