I (Brooks) made my way to Jacksonville this week to check out the amazing ELJ Farms.
WOW… Is how I have to start this off.
Their place is amazing. I was told that the land was an old 9 hole golf course, that is now converted into a party center/batting cages/driving range/fun for the whole family. Plus, you can’t forget the farm animals. They just recently opened and of course it happened as soon as the pandemic hit but that doesn’t deter the staff. They are all happy and very positive people. When I made my visit, they were actually getting ready for a wedding this weekend. If you are looking for a place to have a wedding, The Rustic Barn is your place. The wedding hall is breath taking, full bar inside and out, plenty of seating and just gorgeous decor.
With Christmas right around the corner, they have a light display set up throughout the property that started November 5th and will go until January 2nd. You can only go through Christmas Town on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays. The light display is well over a mile long, with over 1,000,000 lights. Everything from Santa fishing, to singing Christmas trees will be on display in Christmas Town. You can see the lights in many different ways, the comfort of your own vehicle, a tractor ride, or rent the tractor out for a group of your friends or family.
Or if you are just looking for an afternoon with the kids, stop by and let them swing the bat a few times at the batting cages or show them who is the boss in a round of miniature golf at Swingin’ Things.
Stop by today and tell them Brooks sent ya…
