Jay is a small country town. Don't go too fast you might just miss it. We have everything that we need, even a John Deere tractor dealership. Don't be surprised to see a big green tractor going down the road. In Jay, everyone is friendly and most people call you by your name. We have many cotton and peanut farms within the area.

I love living in a small town. There are great schools, and even better people. Everyone looks out for their neighbors, and everyone takes care of each other in times of need. We have several small businesses that contribute to the community.
I'd like to see more buildings/businesses that cooperate with the town. I wish there were more activities to do, but overall the town is pretty small and quiet.
