Prices are a little steep for a local person. Worth the trip for the apple cinnamon doughnuts. Forget the 2.00 fried pie..... Sample some of the ciders in the fall. Take a hayride. These are what makes life worth living.

Mercier Orchards has a large country store outside of Blue Ridge, GA on Highway 5. This store has a little bit of everything- apple, peach, and other ciders, jams, jellies, fruit butters, and other local and homemade delicacies. They have a big bakery counter where they serve some of the best fried pies I've ever had. I wholeheartedly recommend the... More

Stopped here after it was recommended by a rafting guide. She said to try their wine slushie! Wonderful! Ended up getting a very tasty pimento cheese sandwich there as well! Went back the next day and bought another slushie and some amazing cheese straws! Very fun place to stop!

If you love fresh food, get to this place on your next trip to North Georgia. OK, it's a bit rustic, but that's what you were looking for coming to Blue Ridge in the first place. They let you sample various apples before you purchase. They also sell peaches (over the top good and juicy) as well as other fruits... More

We saw the impressive brochures all over Blue Ridge so had to stop on the way back from Ducktown. We didn't have the time, nor inclination to do U Pick, just wanted to see what was in this large store ( its large parking lot could accommodate a lot of cars, but when we got there late Sunday, there were...

My daughter and I went there to go blueberry picking on a Tuesday, but they said there was only blueberry picking on the weekends. This was totally unexpected because the website said blueberry picking this month. Even though we didn't get to pick, we went to their store and bought a pecan pie and an apple fritter. When we got... More

Thank you for your thoughts! We only do U-PICK on weekends, though I didn't see where on the website you saw that we picked through the month. We do not grow all of our produce, and our watermelons are indeed bought from another grower. I will address this with new employees, so they are not giving out wrong information! Thank... More

We have gone to Blue Ridge the last two summers. This is our favorite place to visit in the area. We went for the u-pick over the weekend. We were on the first tractor tour of the day. Facebook page said they would be picking blueberries and blackberries that day. When we started out the staff said just blueberries. My... More

We're glad that you got some blackberries! That morning we had plenty of berries, but they get picked very quickly. Everything is always subject to availability. Thanks for visiting. :) More
