Growing for you since 1943

Welcome to Mercier Orchards


Located in Blue Ridge, Georgia, we are a fourth generation family and veteran owned and operated apple orchard founded back in 1943 by Bill and Adele Mercier. Be sure to pick-up some delicious fruit, fresh baked goods, cider, and specialty items from the market when you visit.

U Pick

We have more than 80 years of farming under our belt, so you might say we know a thing or two about growing fruit. And with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, and over 40 varieties of apples, we’re sure you’ll find something to pick that’ll suit your fancy. So head on over to the farm and join us for one of our famous U-Pick Events.

The Bakery

Our bakery is the sweetest part of our market! Every day, we arrive bright and early to make sure we have plenty of fresh baked goods for you to enjoy! From apple cider donuts to our world-famous fried pies, we have something for everyone!

The Market

We’ve got a whole bunch of fresh seasonal fruits and veggies at our market! Oh, and you definitely don’t want to miss out on our farm-favorite jams, jellies, preserves, and apple butter. There’s truly something for everybody here on the farm.

Winery & Hard Cidery

Did you know that Mercier Orchards is the only apple orchard in Georgia to grow, press, ferment, and can our very own hard cider? Stop on by our tasting room, sip a spell, and enjoy some good ol’ southern hospitality at the farm.
