Georgia Grown Pumpkins from Jaemor Farms

The Echols family at Jaemor Farms in Alto, Georgia has been harvesting crops from their family-owned land for more than a century. It all started with cotton and a few peach trees back in 1912. After a few years of growing this king row crop, they focused on those few peach trees and began selling peaches on the side of Old Cornelia Highway. Later they began to grow apples as well.

In 2002, Jaemor’s diversification expanded even further and gradually came to include strawberries, blackberries, muscadines, scuppernongs,
Concord grapes, watermelon, squash, tomatoes, zucchini, pumpkins, and more.

Jaemor Farms offers fall fun for the entire family complete with a corn maze, mini maze, pumpkin patch, hayrides, farm slides, apple cannons, a pumpkin train, and more!
