Things to do at Mercier

There is always something going on here on the farm! No matter when you visit, you and your family are sure to find something fun to enjoy while you’re here. Whether it’s the height of fall or the quiet of winter, we offer seasonal events, tasty treats, and activities for all ages. Come explore our fields, meet our friendly staff, and create lasting memories.


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. 

Fishing On The Farm

Calling all anglers, young and old! Grab your cane poles, your favorite fishing hat, and gather your loved ones for a day of unforgettable fun at Mercier Orchards. Amidst our rolling hills lies a beautiful pond, some may say “a fisherman’s paradise” waiting to be explored! It’s open to the public for catch and release fishing during our usual business hours and completely free of charge! The water is brimming with bass, bream, and carp, all stocked and eagerly awaiting someone to come by and cast a line!

Tractor Tours

Down here on the farm, we love to show people around. That’s why we’re excited to offer tractor tours throughout spring, summer, and fall! There’s always something new to discover on our 300-acre farm nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Bus & School Tours

Here at the farm we offer a few different tours throughout the year. We welcome both school tours and bus tours! Taking a tour with us means getting to learn about our history that dates back to 1943 as well as exploring the lifecycle of an apple, learning about sustainable farming, and tasting the fruits of our labor!

Santa at the Farm

Ho ho ho! It’s the most wonderful time of the year to visit Mercier Orchards. Our store is all decked out with Christmas cheer and festive decor. Jingle bells fill the air, the scent of freshly baked cookies warms your heart, and the world is filled with joy. It is a special time for families to gather together and share the Christmas spirit.

Wine & Hard Cider Tastings

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

Customer Appreciation Day

Here at Mercier Orchards, we are SO thankful for each and every one of our customers. Every year in February (usually around Adele’s birthday) we hold “Customer Appreciation Day.” It’s our way of saying thank you to everyone who supports us and helps keep us moving forward! You’re not just customers to us, you’re part of our family!
