"Absolutely charming family friendly destination! The produce for sale are good values and perfect quality. The bakery has fresh out of the oven pastries that taste amazing. You can sample ciders, fruit, salsa, baked goods and alcohol. The on site made wines are delicious and the hard ciders are excellent."

"Georgia's Premier Orchards
We have visited Mercier on many occasions, to buy and pick fruit and shop in their great store. Terrific baked goods and hard cider, with a very nice tasting room. This is a must trip for visitors wanting to see NW GA mountains or locals looking for a good day trip."

"All the apple products you could imagine. Clean organized. Hard cider bar and patio was my fav. Wild flower picking bakery this place is the best. Peaches when in season."

"Great experience! My partner came here as a child and has raved about it for a while now. I finally understand the love for this orchard! The property was beautiful. The store was quite large with a large variety of options from sauces, pies, soups, decor, etc. The apple loaf and the apple donuts are off the chain!!"

"I’m from Florida and I can honestly say This place is awesome! We went to Blue ridge Georgia for a vacation and looked up places to see so we went to the Mercier orchards. My Kids got to fish in the pond on the property and the food is awesome! The owner came outback to ask us to move the car and started to have a lovely conversation with us. He was awesome! I’ll definitely recommend this place and go back the next trip! Thank you for being so kind! Ps. My son went up there a few days after we came home and I asked him today to stop in there to get me the muscadine wine! It’s so good!!! AAA++++"
