Mercier Orchards has been providing delicious apples, apple treats and plenty of family fun for over six decades! After being mentioned in Southern Living Magazine as one of America's "favorite roadside apple markets", this hugely popular Fannin County GA Attraction became even more famous. Drawing hundreds of visitors year around, this once best kept secret of Fannin County has become a must stop for visitors and tourists to Blue Ridge Georgia. Adults love the scrumptious concoctions created in the bakery at The Apple House, and children have tons of fun picking their own apples during the fall season. Producing over 20 varieties including rare apples like Gala, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Stayman, and Fuji, Mercier Orchards also grows other fruits like peaches, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries which are customer favorites as well.
Throughout the year and harvest season especially, Mercier Orchards hosts special events, and the family farm is always adding new creations and pastries. Recently Mercier Orchards expanded their bakery and added picture windows allowing customers to see into the bakery and fruit processing center, which is always a joy for the little ones. Stop by Mercier Orchards and try one of their famous fried apple pies, and be sure to pick up a gift basket to take back to your loved ones.
