Long Description:
Mercier Orchards nestled in the North Georgia Mountains is a family owned and operated apple orchard. Started back in 1943 by Bill & Adele Mercier, Mercier Orchards is now celebrating 66 years of fruitful harvests. Bill, an agricultural agent, knew that the sunshine, rainfall, cold nights, and good soil of the Georgia mountains would produce the sweet, tart, juicy apples that Mercier Orchards is known for. One stop at Mercier Orchards sends your senses into overdrive. Bushels of apples, fresh from the surrounding orchard, invite you to taste. Bottles of fresh cider, jams, jellies and other gourmet treats are ready for you to take home. Share the harvest with fortunate friends and family. Also while visiting, stop by our bakery and try a famous fried apple pie or at the deli and sample our home made pecan chicken salad. we also offer a unique variety of farm toys, pet items, kitchen paraphernalia, home decor and a meat and cheese shop.
