Just 6 Weeks Away – “U Pick Strawberries” – Mercier Orchards

The Mountain Life Team Blogger March 4, 2013

strawberriesI know most of us by now are definitely ready for spring in the mountains!  The winter is beautiful especially with the snow we have seen in the North Georgia Mountains, but there comes the time when we are all ready to enjoy the spring flowers in bloom, the nature that surrounds us, getting more outdoor time for the kids and most definitely..the U-Pick Strawberry event at Blue Ridge’s Merciers Orchards!

The plan for the U-Pick Strawberry days are to begin the weekend of April 13th.  However, this is subject to change depending on what type of weather could occur. …I will be updating as time gets closer if this is the actual official opening weekend.  If you have not had the opportunity to enjoy this with your family, it is such a great event.  You will enjoy a fabulous mountain view at the largest orchard in the southeast.  There is a tractor ride that will take you all around the orchard for you to pick delicious strawberries and to take in the breathtaking view.

After you enjoy this great event, you must head to downtown Blue Ridge to enjoy all of the wonderful restaurants and shops that this town has to offer.  Let the kids pick up a delicious sweet treat at The Sweet Shoppe of Blue Ridge. (season 6 winner of cupcake awards).   Plan a spring trip to Blue Ridge…you won’t be disappointed!
