Jones Family Farms & Winery

For over 150 years, the Jones family has been working the lands on their farm in Shelton, Connecticut.  Today this 400-acre farm offers one of the finest harvest-your-own picking experiences due to the high quality crops and the knowledgeable, friendly farmers and staff.

 

Generation after generation of farm guests visit the farm each year - not only to savor the unbelievable flavor of our delicious strawberries or to find the perfect Christmas tree, but to enjoy time with their family while experiencing the rustic beauty of our farm.

 

Nestled in the beautiful White Hills of Shelton, Connecticut, lies one of the state's premier wineries. The balance of rich soil, southwestern-facing slopes, and an experienced 6th generation farmer working the land, combine to make Jones Winery a true treasure for all Connecticut residents and visitors to cherish and enjoy. Connecticut Magazine named the Jones Winery the Best Wine in 2010.
