Welcome To Mercier Orchards
We are a 4th generation family & veteran-owned and operated apple orchard founded back in 1943 by Bill and Adele Mercier. We cherish the fact that we are a part of so many family traditions. The joy it brings us to see people of all ages making great memories here at the Orchard is unmeasurable.
While this year has been challenging at times, we know we can get through this together. Just like we take precautions to care for our Orchard, we want to be proactive to keep you and our staff safe when you visit.
Thank you for your continued support, hope to see you soon!
We Are Open
Market & Bakery Open 9 AM to 5 PM Every Day

Downtown Store: Temporarily Closed
All customers must wear a face-covering in the building. We ask that customers observe social distancing and stay at least 6 feet apart as much as possible.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer U-Pick at this time due to staffing shortages. However, the crop is looking good and we have lots of delicious apples in the market.
You can call ahead to place Curbside Pick-Up orders. It’s easy, give us a call at 706-632-3411 and we will take it from there. Pick-Up times are limited so call ahead.
To make things easier we will be offering all of our delicious baked goods in easy Grab-N-Go boxes. Our goal is to reduce wait times while ensuring you still get fresh bakery treats.
The cafe at the farm is open Saturday and Sunday 9am to 4pm and our downtown store is temporarily closed.
With the current change shortage and goal of reducing person-to-person contact, we ask that customers pay by card when possible.
We will continue to have friendly and knowledgeable staff available to answer questions and help you select items, but we will not be offering any tastings of products at this time.
Can’t Wait To See You Soon!
Q: Why are you not offering U-Pick?
A: Due to staffing shortages at this time we cannot safely facilitate U-Pick. Many businesses in the area are facing challenges finding people to work.
However, our orchard crew will be working hard to provide you with all of your favorite varieties in the market. We will be sure to pick only the finest apples, which won’t be hard because this year’s crop is looking great!
Q: Will you still have fresh Apples in the Market?
A: Yes, we will have lots of delicious hand-picked apples from the orchard in the market.
Q: What kind of Face-Covering should I wear?
A: We recommend you follow the CDC and local government guidance.
Q: What if I don't have a face-covering with me?
Q: How do I place and pick-up a Call Ahead Curbside order?
A: You can call us at 706-632-3411 to place your order. Our team will give you pick-up instructions at that time. Please note you must call ahead to place your order – The more advanced notice you give us the better. Pick-up times are 9am to 10am and 4pm to 5pm.
Q: Why are you only offering grab-n-go bakery goods?
A: Our bakery goods are very popular and people come from all over to enjoy them. To reduce people being in lines, person-to-person contact, and to maintain a steady flow of traffic we are offering freshly made pre-boxed bakery goods to help make the process faster and more convenient.
Q: Are the bakery goods still fresh?
A: Absolutely, nothing is changing there.
Q: Why is the Downtown Store closed?
A: To be frank, we are short-handed and need that staff in other areas.
