Southern Belle Farm (Nearby Hotels)

With an absolutely perfect family environment, Southern Belle seasonally rotates picking sessions from strawberries in the spring, to peaches, blackberries and sweet blueberries in the summer. A fairly new barn-style building now sells produce if you’d rather not pick yourself, and fresh cakes are baked right on site. Spring brings strawberry shortcake to the farm, made with fresh berries. A petting zoo, train rides, slides and other outdoor fun make a full day out of your berry picking adventure.

Whitley Farms (Nearby Hotels)

Charmingly simple, Whitley Farm’s country atmosphere is set by strawberry fields, a produce stand and a variety of sweet animals. Perhaps being Sharpsburg’s best kept secret, the farm harvests unusually flavorful tomatoes and strawberries.

It’s all about the blueberries at this cute Powder Springs patch. When berries are in season and have fully ripened to a plump state, Blue Moon Berries opens its gates seven days a week. Pick until your heart is content, or at least  until the daylight is gone!

The Kinsey Family Farm (Nearby Hotels)

Starting out, and still operating as a Christmas tree farm, this adorable Gainesville gem also yields a diverse autumn crop while offering hayrides and other family activities. Baby goats scamper through the fields, too—that’s reason enough to go!

Sugar Hill Berry Farm (Nearby Hotels)

Sweet southern muscadines, a type of grape with a thick skin and a unique sweet center, are beloved southern treats available mid to late summer. If you happen to be traveling through Murrayville, stopping for a bucket or two is essential. A beautiful peach grove, also iconic of the South, brings a touch of pink to the scenery with fluffy blossoms. Sugar Hill also raises their own bees to produce pure, local honey.

Jaemor Farms (Nearby Hotels)

With the North Georgia Mountains lining the sky, Jaemor sets gorgeously in scenic Alto. The market is overflowing with local produce, including their own juicy Georgia peaches, bread, jellies, sauces, desserts and other homemade deliciousness such as real peach ice cream! Their you-pick strawberry day comes once a year, so do your research before packing up the car!

Lane Orchards (Nearby Hotels)

Lane is southern to the core, offering peach picking and delicious peach products, such as out-of-this-world ice cream, pies, breads and preserves. It takes some time to browse the large marketplace, where you can also get freshly harvested pecans, and pecan pie that would make grandma proud.
