Welcome To Mercier Orchards
We are a family-owned and operated apple orchard now in its 4th generation which was started back in 1943 by Bill & 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.
This year we are excited to be introducing our Apple Subscription Boxes – Learn More and sign-up before they are all gone!
Thank you for your continued support, hope to see you soon!
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.
This year we will be offering a “We-Pick” season, where we will be picking our delicious apples for you. The crop is looking good, we can’t wait to share them with you!
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.
With the current change shortage and goal of reducing person-to-person contact, we ask that customers pay by card when possible.
Our cafe at the farm is still serving up delicious food. You can place orders online – Click Here. We are offering carry-out service only at this time. Our Downtown Cafe is temporarily closed.
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.
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.
Can’t Wait To See You Soon!
Q: Why are you not offering U-Pick?
A: Just like we take precautions to keep our crops safe, we want to do the same for you and our staff. The logistics for U-Pick is not feasible under current conditions. However, our orchard crew will be working hard to provide you with all of your favorite varieties. 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.
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 Cafe closed?
A: To be frank, we are short-handed and need that staff in other areas.
