  • Their fried apple and peach are our favorite...we have found them to be the perfect combination of fried but not greasy at all...they also have large selection of all apples, produce, honey, etc. 
  • Went on a Saturday and the place was very busy. Staff very efficient. Many activities for children to participate in. Apples were delicious.

  • This was our first apple picking experience! It was fun :) There were a lot of apple trees and they are separated by types of apple. Though there were really only Rome and Golden Delicious. The other trees were bare. The smell is overwhelming from the rotting apples on the ground, but if you go prepared maybe you can ignore it? It was a fun experiencing either way. We went on a weekday so the apple cannon and activities were not open (ONLY ON SATURDAY) but I am glad we avoided the crowds. And the kids still got to go to the petting farm area which they LOVED and was their favorite part. They could really interact with the animals and get right into their environments. There were a couple eye raising spots like the garbage cans (3 of them) in a pen with the goats. But other than that they all looked well cared for. The farm store was very large and lots of yummy things to buy. Of course apples and apple products, other produce, cider, fresh baked goods etc... We purchased cider which was delicious and you can sample in the store, apple bread (though not baked there at the farm and has a lot of ingredients) was REALLY tasty, some sweet potatoes, apple fritters (a bit dry and no apple chunks) and apple and peach mini pies which were very sweet. All in all a great day and not too bad on the wallet. Be sure to check out the BEES in the farm store, it is quite a site to behold.
  • Parking was very busy, but seemed relatively well managed with a police officer managing traffic at the one entrance and staff guiding traffic within the grass parking lot. The produce within the store looked great and was reasonably priced compared with nearby locations with one exception: 1/2 peck of apples was $7, while R&A down the road has 1/2 peck apples for $6 (full peck was $12 at both locations). My experience went downhill after I began trying some of the different varieties at the apple tasting station. The woman giving out the apple samples could not have been more rude and unpleasant. This was my first visit to north GA for apples and I wanted to sample all of the varieties before deciding which varieties to purchase. After sampling 4-5 of the varieties, I was told in a very stern and annoyed voice that I was sampling far too many and needed to move along. I'm sorry, but the apple pieces for sampling are very small and there was no reason for this response! Why should I be expected to spend money on apples without first sampling? After this, we decided to leave without making any purchases (I had plans to buy 3 1/2 pecks of different apple varieties, onions, and tomatoes). I refuse to spend money at a place after being so rudely treated. We went down the road to R&A orchards and had a very pleasant experience, and even saved a few dollars on the 3 1/2 pecks we purchased.
  • So much fun during apple picking season. They have fun activities for all ages on the weekends. Not to mention getting the apples straight from the tree couldn't be any better. We don't miss a year now that we've done this and are apple snobs now. Thanks BJ Reece for a delicious yearly treat!
  • Went today with my family, four adults and three young elementary age children. The staff was very polite and friendly. There were plenty of people, including some school groups, but the property did not feel over crowded. I know last weekend was very busy but there were still plenty of apples for picking, though some were a bit higher (luckily the kids in our family love shoulder rides!). While there are plenty of weekend special things, it's is still fun during the week (and the petting zoo is open, which the children adored). The prices are very reasonable, the food very good, and the property is all around well kept and enjoyable. It's not the most well known or hard, which I actually enjoyed because it means it wasn't as crowded and was much more laid back. I absolutely would recommend!
  • Good place to take the kids on a dry weekend. 4 stars only because there was so much traffic just trying to get into the place and the ticket lines were super long. A good variety of apples makes up for it. The jumping bag was cool. Tractor ride was okay.
