Mercier Orchards had the best tasting apples. The you pick experience was just awesome! Field guides were extra friendly. They were also very informative and helpful. Fun for the entire family. Made a super delicious apple pie with their McIntosh apples!
We absolutely LOVED IT! Whether you are with your kids on a family outing or ready to taste the best hard cider in Georgia, Mercier Orchards is the place to go. The facility is huge! They have thousands of delicious and beautiful things to taste and buy. There is a wonderful outdoor seating area where you can drink cider flights and wine that's covered. They even had live music on Saturday when we were there! We will definitely be back. I highly recommend Mercier Orchards 😍
