"We drove two hours specially to go to this beautiful place, it worth the drive, I’ve been dreaming about those delicious crispy fried pies. We came back home relaxed after spending time by the irrigation pond, it was an amazing day!!!!"

"Excellent picking experience. This was my first time to self pick apples and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Many varieties to choose from and a special bonus when Tim Mercer hoped onto the back of the trailer, answered questions and provided some history on the family orchard. So much to choose from in the market and super friendly people. Would totally recommend for anyone who would be interested in self picking."

"80 years and going strong! This is somehow a hidden gem in the North Georgia Mountains! This place has too much to list and don't get me started on that hard apple cider and wine selection! Gifts? Snacks? Apparel? Yes, yes and yes. Go visit this place and thank me later."
