“Nice General Store”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were there in December so there were no u-picks going on. The store itself was worth the visit. plenty of specialty food items and cider for sale. Even our teenagers enjoyed the store

“great way to spend the afternoon!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

On a recent holiday stay in Blue Ridge , GA. , the family stopped by the Mercier Orchard -- primarily looking for a christmas tree --- unexpectedly coming across a great little store!!
Alot of interesting and unique gifts and gadgets. The employees all had a very friendly and helpful attitude--- amazing-- considering it was wall to wall customers trying to finish up last minute shopping!! I don't know if some big corporation owns this establishment -- but you leave feeling like its a wonderful Mom and Pop store from years gone by.
The onsite bakery was fantastic---- you can't go wrong trying any of the fresh pastries!
My family made sure that later in the week ,on our departure day , that we stopped by to pickup more pastries and purchased some heavily discounted "after christmas gifts".
We're looking forward to coming back up to the Blue Ridge area in the fall --- will definately stop by the "Orchard" to catch some of the apple picking action .

“If you only can visit one store while in Blue Ridge, make it Mercier”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

There is not a single product at Mercier that I've tried that wasn't fantastic. My personal favorites: Apples (it's an orchard after all), Mexican Hot Salsa, Apple Bread, Fried Pies, Dried Apples, Cider Donuts and allllll of their whole pies.

“Apples Galore”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

If you love apples then you have found just the place. Apple fritters, apple pies, and cider are the main attractions. They even have a restaurant in case you need a bite to eat.
