Spooky season is creeping up in just a couple short months and there's no better way to prepare for the best part of the year than by picking your own pumpkins. The iconic symbol of autumn serves so many purposes, whether it be pumpkin carving, roasting the seeds, or just using them as decor to set the fall vibes. Pumpkin picking in Georgia is a must on everyone's fall bucket list and this farm in north Georgia lets you pick your own pumpkins, sunflowers and more.
Family-owned Jaemor Farms is located among the gorgeous north Georgia mountains in Alto, Georgia. The 107-year-old farm's rustic, vintage aesthetic gives off the perfect energy for spending a crisp fall day on the farm and makes for even better Instagram shots. Tons of fresh crops grow during harvest season among the 500 acres of land including watermelon, squash, muscadines and of course, pumpkins.
Instead of sorting through a bunch of pumpkins that have already been plucked, you have the freedom to pick your own right from the roots at Jaemor farms. There is also a massive sunflower field that doubles as the perfect backdrop for an IG photo shoot and you can pick those too.
Beginning in early October, you can pick one sunflower for only $2, six for $11 and a dozen for $20. As for pumpkins, the $14 admission ticket with cornmaze includes a pumpkin patch pass, but if you simply want to visit the pumpkin patch (which opens on Sept. 21), you can do so for $4.
You can pick your own or choose from the pre-cut patch. If you're more into having things picked for you, we get it. You can visit their massive farmers market and complete an entire grocery trip with everything from fresh produce to homemade ice cream.
If you and your boo are looking for a special date night, visit Jaemor farms on Sept. 27, for "Date Night on the Farm." The $45 ticket includes the cornmaze, pumpkin-picking, a hayride farm tour and live music. They also have a yummy dinner menu with country classics like chili, a baked potato bar and homemade pumpkin cake.
If the trip to Alto seems a little far-fetched, Jaemor farms has daily pop-up markets in Gainesville, Oakwood, Braselton, Athens, Watkinsville, Winder, Suwannee and Cumming (and a permanent one in Commerce). Make sure you come back for the spring and summer months next year because they have "U-pick" days when you can fill your basket with fresh strawberries and peaches that you pick yourself.
If you're looking for more fall, produce-picking fun, check out these Georgia orchards with apple cider donuts and an adult slide or this pumpkin patch with over 20 activities and games.
