This past weekend we had some cabin time with friends...
I was bound and determined we were going to pick apples somewhere...luckily we found a great place 11 miles from the cabin. Mercier Orchards!

In a nutshell...I loved it so much I wish I could work there! They have over 200 acres...with U-Pick Apples, soon Pumpkins, and next spring U-Pick Strawberries and Cherries! Free tractor rides to the apples...$6 for 1/2 peck, $12 for a peck. The store is huge...the bakery is too and has about 20 flavors of fresh daily homemade fried pies...strawberry cream, blueberry cream, coconut, apple, peach, cream cheese (day old baked goods are sold 1/2 price)...they also have homemade apple cider donuts...several flavors of homemade icecream...the apple fritters are to die for...a cute restaurant...gifts galore...so grab your honey or BF or mama and jump on 575 and head to Blue Ridge!
Oh and I guess I'll plug the company we rented from too:

Our original trip was planned for this past February...the weekend it snowed in GA...and the roads iced over...people were sliding off the roads trying to get to the cabins on our road...so we ended up staying at the Comfort Inn and driving home...Cuddle Up was kind enough to keep our money in Feb...but let us pick another time to come back.
