What to do in the Blue Ridge, GA mountains...Mercier Orchards

 Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge GA

We're fortunate to live in Murphy, NC and be just minutes to the TN and GA state lines.  One of our favorite stops to make over in the Blue Ridge, GA area is at the Mercier Orchards for their famous Fried Pies. They have all kinds of flavors like... Peach, Guava, Cherry, etc... but Apple is still my favorite. Of course we usually leave with a box of fried pies and some Apple Bread and Cider too.

     

Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge GAMercier Orchards is a family owned and operated apple orchard. Started back in 1943 by Bill & Adele Mercier, Mercier Orchards is now celebrating 69 years of fruitful harvests. You’ll see Miss Adele in the store and back in the kitchen sometimes too! And my oh my has it grown over the years as they are always adding new items and adding on space to accommodate all the daily visitors.

we were planning to get that way later this month, but as it turns out my Donald's leave was denied so I guess another vacation postponed... so I'm glad they are open everyday... because I really want a fried apple pie now.

At least we're not too far from you when you do get a chance, Tammy. Mercies use to close for a little while after December, but now we can stop in any day! We love taking Clients there and they're never disappointed either.

Me too, Alexandra! I've tried all the flavors (imagine that) but apple always wins out. Fritters, fried pies, bread, muffins, ice cream, cider...you name it, they've got it.
