9696 Hwy 52
Ellijay, GA 30536

About an hour and a half away from Atlanta, Hillcrest Orchards offers pick your own apples during the Apple Pickin' Jubilee. The Jubilee runs on weekends through the end of the month, from 9am-6pm and will run you a $6 per person entry. In addition to apple picking, you can also milk cows, wander nature trails, play games and watch a honey bee demo.

2. The Red Apple Barn

3379 Tails Creek Rd
Ellijay, GA 30540

The $5 Tractor Ride and Tour option sounds like the way to go here. Includes: a tractor ride to and from the orchard, a tour of the farm, some apple picking, plus treats: a cup cold cider and an apple cider donut.

3. BJ Reece Apple House

9131 Hwy 52
Ellijay, GA 30536

On weekends they have something called an apple cannon, for the competitive sort. Think you have what it takes to smash an apple from 500 ft away? $2 UPick entry fee plus a really lovely looking bakery.

Free tractor tours of Mercier farms sounds like a great way to spend a weekend in October. Pick your own apples (a bag is $10) and pumpkins (any pumpkin for $6).
