Brought to you by Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition
Start your own Fall Tradition on the Illinois Lincoln Highway at Jonamac Orchard in Malta, Illinois! Jonamac is an Illinois Lincoln Highway Autumn Highway Highlight! The orchard offers visitors a delightful variety of things to see and do along with activities for the whole family and special events throughout the season.
While there visit the beautiful 20 acre Pick-Your-Own Apple Orchard. Over 30 different varieties of apples are available throughout the season, offering plenty of options for snacking and cooking. Bring out the whole family to enjoy the authentic hand-picking experience! You can catch a wagon ride out to the 10 acre pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin too!
Stop by the country store and bakery for warm apple donuts made from scratch each day. There will be a good supply of fresh picked apples available for sale too. Enjoy a glass of Jonamac's award-winning apple cider, an apple slushy, a delicious hand-dipped caramel apple or freshly baked apple pie! A wide variety of homemade jams, jellies, mustards and apple butter are available for purchase, as well as gifts and crafts.
The Apple Cart is the place to go for a delicious lunch or snack. Take a rest in the shade of the shelter and enjoy yummy apple cider brats, pulled pork sandwiches and burgers.
The Barnyard activity area is a great spot for kids! Kids can climb on the giant hay bale pile, play in the grain bin, feed and pet the animals in the petting zoo, race around the track on a peddle trikes, run through the wooden maze, hide out in the fort or kid-sized barn, jump on the giant Jumping Pillow, and hitch a ride on the Apple Train!
Have fun with the Apple Launcher and the Apple Cannon. Test your aim in firing apples from a slingshot or air powered cannon at the targets. While you’re there, watch the Pumpkin Howitzer where pumpkins are blasted clear across the field with the 15-foot tall cannon every half hour.
Jonamac’s amazing 10 acre Corn Maze is designed this year as the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition’s 100 Year logo, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the famed highway. Venture out in to the maze and just try not to get lost along the three miles of pathways and two bridges! If you’d like to navigate the Corn Maze at night Jonamac offers visitors a little “something extra”. You can add in a special memory-making element to your evening by reserving a campfire site to enjoy s’mores around the fire until dusk. Be sure to plan a night to experience The Haunting inside the corn maze. Jonamac boasts, “Once the sun goes down in October, beware! The Haunted Corn Maze is filled with spooks and goblins lurking about in the shadows of the tall corn stalks. Follow the moonlit paths and try your best to escape!” To make things even a little scarier, flashlights are not allowed in the Haunted Maze, only glow sticks or pen lights.
