Touring GA Farms #GAAgritourism #ExploreGeorgia #hosted @SouthernBelleFarmGA @FarmviewMarket

The first stop on our tour was Southern Belle Farm.  Located in McDonough, it is a former dairy farm.  It now plays host to a variety of U-Pick options (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and peaches) as well as activities for the family.  There is also a Farm Market on site that carries fresh baked goodies, fresh produce and more.  Southern Belle Farm made the move to agritourism so that the farm could continue on and grow into what the current economy will support.  Currently closed to the public, it will reopen late September with a corn maze, pumpkin patch and more.

We stopped for lunch at Farmview Market.  Not far from downtown Madison, GA you can shop for local grown/sourced products.  Did you know that your best bet for local honey is a 50 mile radius from where you live?  Otherwise, the benefits of helping with allergies is lost.  The Market prefers to use hyper local sourced foods in their cafe, but when unavailable will expand the radius until they find what they need.  The food was fantastic and definitely worth the visit.  They also offer classes, which you can find on their web site.
