Help Coffee Party Orders

Here at JB Tree Farm, we are happy to announce an exciting new food opportunity for your parties and groups. You may have noticed the black food truck, Help Coffee Company, last fall. We are working together with the owners of the food business, John and Melissa, to offer exceptional food for your parties so that you don't have to bring everything and still have fresh delicious food for your party with no effort on your part. We offer homemade food made here, including Colombian specialties, made fresh by Help Coffee Company. You can choose from sandwiches, meal bowls, fries, specialty coffee drinks and smoothies, Colombian food, and more. John and Melissa Casas will have this ready for you at the specific time you request.

To do this efficiently, we need your complete order. We know pinpointing your numbers ahead of time can be difficult, but the groups who collect fees ahead of time tell us their participants are much more likely to follow through on coming if they have already paid. For the food quantities, numbers may be added but not decreased because of food purchase in advance. Please notify us of increases 48 hours ahead and slight increases in numbers upon arrival will be workable. Click here for an Excel worksheet of the full menu offered by Help Coffee Company.

The menu can be downloaded to your device so you can calculate the cost of the various quantities of the items you wish to order.

There is also a printable PDF file of the menu here.

Food reservations must be made at least a week in advance.

Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours in advance for 90% refund of deposit.

To place your order, please use the excel file and email it to bookhammer@aol.com. You can also print the PDF file, fill it in and email it to us, drop it off at the farm during open hours, or mail it to: JB Tree Farm, 7885 Barker Road, Alexandria, PA 16611

Special requests for food, such as no onions or no cilantro can be accommodated as well.

A 50% deposit is required at time of order. Deposits may be made by debit or credit card over the phone or in person. Cash deposits may be made in person here at JB Tree Farm. Balance of the food payment should be made upon arrival at the farm when you check in and pay the admission fees.

Message from John and Melissa: “We are a Colombian family helping Colombian coffee farmers to improve their lives by buying their coffee at a fair price and bringing the premium coffee directly to United States. We cut out the middleman and offer a great price and quality coffee to our consumers. You can find more about us at www.helpcoffee.co.” Please note that the “.co” in the web address is correct and stands for Colombia.

General Information for Parties

Many party sponsors want to pay for the children they invite to parties but not cover all of the parents bringing or accompanying the children, which is very understandable.  If you wish to communicate this with the parents of the children whom you invite please explain that the party will take place within the General Admission area for reasons of safety and security.  The General Admission area is contained by a fence and every person must be wearing a purchased wristband to gain admittance to the General Admission area.  There is a check point as one leaves the barn area and before entering the picnic and play area.  Wristbands must be worn inside of the picnic and play area.

Party sponsors are responsible for being sure ALL guests receive a wristband either purchased by party sponsors or the guests themselves.  Guests may not go into the picnic area before acquiring the wristband.  If sponsors purchase the bands, please wait in the large barn or the small party waiting area near the pumpkin pay register until all of your party arrives.  If guests are to purchase their own, please instruct guests to go in to THE CHRISTMAS SHOP to purchase their wristbands before going out into picnic area.  Guests arriving late to a sponsored party should contact the sponsor for wristbands or purchase them in the Christmas shop.

Prices are $12 Regular admission (ages 10 to 61), $8 Senior admission (ages 62 and up), $8 Junior admission (4-9), and Munchkins (3 and under) are free.  If any of the guests are not interested in doing the Maze and Hayride, but would still like to accompany the Party, they can purchase a "Play Area Only" wristband for $3; this will allow them to be in the Play Area and Party Area, but not in the Maze or on Hayrides.

Group Discounts

If you have 20 or more paid admissions in your group, the tour rate will be discounted by 10%. Admission MUST be paid all at the same time, by one form of payment, by one person.

Youth groups and other church groups of 20 or more will receive a special discount.  Unfortunately, we have had problems with youth groups causing damage and misbehaving.     We love having these young people here and believe it is very important for them to come. However, if you bring a youth group these rules must be followed.  The rules are not in place to inhibit the enjoyment of the youth but instead to allow the maze to exist for all to enjoy it.  These are the simple common sense rules: No running, smoking, corn picking or corn throwing, stay on the path, do not cut through the corn. Many hours of planning, planting, construction, weeding, forming, and maintenance have gone into the maze each year.  Our maze staff works hard to assure that vandalism is not happening, but we also need the accompanying adults to stand firm about this please.  If all these conditions are met, at the end of your time here your group will receive a 20% refund on their admission.
