Quick weekend getaway. We stop at several orchards. We like this one for their unusual pies. Strawberry cream cheese and I had chocolate pecan fried pie. Mmmmm

Nice selection of fruits and 19 different varieties of fried pies! We just stopped by after visiting another orchard. It was much less crowded than the other.

A fantastic orchard to stop in & get your apples! Great selection of apples & peaches! Lots of other local fresh fruit & vegetables! Fresh baked pies etc! Farm tours! You pick! Definitely a must visit when in Georgia's Apple Capital

We travel to R & A every so often when we get a desire to have a delicious fried apple pie. Luckily, the distance is not that far from home. Also, get the sweet potato pie; not always available, but worth the wait when they...More
