  • Mercier Orchard is a MUST! Everything is so well ran. We've taken the hay ride to go apple picking & had a blast! The guides are super helpful & informative. (I had no idea prior to visiting the orchard that there's shop many kinds of apples) The orchard has an amazing store, bakery, restaurant & cider house. Always clean & well stocked with abundant choices. It's very kid friendly. They do fun things for every season. We visit from Orlando almost every year. Of you don't live near by, make sure you stock up...once you've had their apple butter (the peach butter is amazing too) you'll never be satisfied with other brands.
  • This was an absolutely awesome experience from start to finish. Well worth the amount of money we spent in there every time Corner we went around we ended up buying something else. Took 3 bushels of apples home with us as well. This has become a new yearly go to destination for us wish we would have known about it sooner.
  • The deli has a great breakfast, quick service and friendly staff. The bakery bakes and fries pies fresh daily. We recommend the apple fritters and the fried cherry hand pie. Also recommend picking up a blackberry pie and heating that up to eat with vanilla bean ice cream. Local honey, preserves, jellies, butters, jams also available.
  • All kinds of APPLES. DESSERTS. RELISHES. INTERESTING MIX OF BEERS N WINES. TASTING OPTIONS. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR ID IN YR CAR LIKE I DID. NO MATTER HOW OLD YOU ARE GEORGIA NEEDS ID BEFORE YOU TAKE A TASTING SIP 😲😄
  • This was an absolutely fantastic place to visit and we only found it by accident. We were driving from Tennessee to Atlanta Georgia and this was on the way and once we seen the sign we actually made a u-turn to come back and thank goodness we did. The staff here is beyond amazing and friendly they let you sample food and they have a Tasting Room to try other local Brews if they make. I live in Florida and it makes me sad that I have to drive so far if I want to revisit this place.
