Guide to Apple Picking Farms or Orchards near Atlanta

Apple picking is one of a fun and affordable family activity. The idea of being able to pick your own apples gives kids of any ages the motivation to walk along the apple trees line and pick their own apple.

I realize that the weather in Atlanta doesn’t really feel like Fall and I always imagine that apple picking is a fall activity for the family. Oh! well, it is what it is. So with the crazy weather, the apple picking season starts early this year.

As with other information we provide on our site, we try our best to give you the most accurate information. However, the nature of apple picking relies heavily on the mother nature. Please make sure to contact the apple orchards before packing up the kids and heading there.

Here are few u-pick apple orchards that you and your kids can enjoy a beautiful morning picking apples in or around Atlanta area.
