Stopped in to get apples after leaving Amicalola State Park and not disappointed. Got a bag of Pink Lady apples and they were delicious. Taking back home to FL. Apples looked better here than at Mercier Orchard. Worth a stop!

One of few places of this nature that is open Year ‘round. This family run operation has a loyal local & tourist following. Seasonal produce, baked goods, ice cream, etc. I get sugar-free apple pies there. Popular Ellijay destination.
