Fall Frenzy Days
Strawberry picking will begin in May, 2020. Follow us on Facebook for undates.
Please call, or check JB Tree Farm on Facebook for news and special offers.
Why buy strawberries imported from California or Mexico when you can purchase quality strawberries from a local, trusted farm? We take great care in growing these strawberries ourselves to provide you with quality produce at a reasonable price. Strawberries are pick-your-own at $2.49 a pound. Pre-picked are $4.95 a quart (please order pre-picked at least a day in advance). Strawberries will be available for picking into October, until a hard frost. Updates on the strawberry patch will be posted to our Facebook page.

FALL FRENZY HOURS
- Monday - Thursday: noon - 5pm
- Friday: noon - 10pm
- Saturday: noon - 10pm
- Sunday: noon - 7pm
Please remember that our activities will end at closing time. When planning your fun at JB Tree Farm, be sure to come early enough to allow 30 minutes for the last hayride, or up to an hour for the last maze, or an hour and a half BEFORE closing time if you want to complete both activities.
One wristband will get paying customers in the Corn Maze, on the Hayride, and the Play area for one flat, all-inclusive price of $10.00 per Regular admission: ages 10 - 61, $7.00 for Senior: ages 62 and up, or $7.00 for Junior admission: ages 4-9. You simply have to present your wristband (on your wrist) at the entrance to these three areas. The Christmas shop and pumpkin patch will be open to the general public like before. Munchkins, ages 0-3, are free.
Test your sense of direction in our 6-acre Corn Maze. Navigating the Corn Maze can take you anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours. We create a new design every year for the maze, so you'll never walk the same path from year to year. Should you need assistance in finding the exit, our friendly employees are happy to assist you. You can also call our Christmas Shop (814-832-3430) and we can contact one of the workers to find you, or someone from your party. Our maze is wide enough to accommodate strollers and wheelchairs.
The Maze Game
Our Maze Game, should you choose to accept the challenge, involves finding different shaped hole-punches hidden in the maze. When you come to one of the stakes holding the hole-punches, use it to punch the corresponding shape in the Game Card. Collect all the shapes and find your way to the EXIT of the Corn Maze where you can claim your prize at the counter or the pumpkin weigh station. One Game Card per person with a wristband. While you are allowed to enter the maze as many times as you want with your wristband, you will only receive one Game Card.
The 2018 maze design honored and celebrated the life of Jerry Barker, the founder, along with his wife Eleanor, of JB Tree Farm. Born June 21, 1918, Jerry passed away three months shy of his 100th birthday. It had a pipe organ (like the one Jerry and his helpers removed from the Presbyterian Church in Williamsburg and reassembled at the Presbyterian Church in Alexandria), bass and tenor clefs, a bass violin (Jerry played for years), a B-24 bomber (Jerry flew one on 25 missions in WWII), a Q2 airplane (Jerry and his son-in-law Hal Grove built one), a fish (Jerry loved to fish), and a mill stone (Jerry had Keystone Milling in Williamsburg for many years). All these were a part of Jerry's life as, according to the Morrison's Cove Herald, "the most interesting man in Williamsburg."
Nighttime maze tours and hayrides are open until 10 pm. Our late hours on Fridays and Saturdays are the perfect opportunity to test your navigation skills by touring our maze at night. No scares included! Bring an operating flashlight for this activity or purchase one here; we also have batteries available. A bonfire, s'mores, and hot dogs will be available for weenie roasting!back to top
Enjoy God's creation as you take a relaxing ride on one of our wagons. Tour the fields of Christmas trees from the comfort of the Hayride and catch a glimpse of our cows and their offspring, and possibly other wildlife. Admission to the Hayride is included in the wristband price. You can ride as many times as you want with the wristband. Please remember to be courteous to other customers by leaving the wagon at the end of your ride and go to the end of the line. If there is no line, please feel free to stay on.
Harvest Play Area
Our Play Area is perfect for the young and young at heart! The Play Area includes a fantastic hay pyramid with rooms and tunnel, a boat, a climbing fort with a slide, a wooden train, more tunnels, a tire snake, a playhouse, a rocket climbing plane, and a short school bus. In 2018, we added tetherball and a small truck to play on. For 2019, we have added a wooden ship complete with slide, ladder, ramp, ship's wheel, fireman's pole and two trapeze bars!
This year, customers can come sling pumpkins at fun targets! This is not included with the wristband. Those who wish to test their aim with our pumpkins will pay $2 for 3 shots, $5 for 10 shots, or $20 for 50 shots. Prizes can be won for hitting the target on the fly! Sorry, must be 14 or older.
