We start to have sweet corn around July 1st, if the weather lets us plant early enough. When we start harvesting sweet corn, we open up the orchard and start selling produce. By July we also hope to start producing tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, cabbage, green beans, cucumbers, summer squash, eggplant and broccoli.
The first of August is around the time we start selling our apples, donuts and other goodies, depending on when the apples begin to ripen. We have fresh cider available as soon as we have enough apples picked to make some, usually mid to late August. The entertainment part of the orchard is normally open around the first of August also. After that, our hours are from 8am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday and 12pm to 6pm on Sundays. We don’t charge any admission to Jacobs' Family Orchard.
We also sell a wide variety of Dillman Farms products, local honey, sorghum, Tennessee Chow-Chow, mulling spices, peaches from Carolinas during August and September, baking mixes and Amish Country popcorn.
Depending on the weather, we should have pumpkins, winter squash and fall items ready right after Labor day weekend.
We do offer school tours in the fall. See the events tab for all the info. Call early, because our school tours are popular and fill up fast.
