  • Jaemor Farms at Banks Crossing -- Farmers Market

Jaemor Farms, a 350-acre family-owned and operated farm, was established in 1981 by Jim Echols and family. It is the main outlet for the peach and apple production of Echols Orchards. 

In July 2013, the family opened its second Farm Market location, just 30 minutes south of the home farm and market. We are excited to join the Banks Crossing family to provide fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade breads and cakes, jellies, jams, preserves, sauces, ciders and more at our second market. Whether it's the holiday season, annual trip or special occasion, make Jaemor visits a new tradition for your family!

At the farm: We have farm tours on Saturdays in July and August. On weekends in September and October, we offer an eight-acre corn maze with farm slide, apple sling shot, hand-pump duck races and hayrides.
