Apple picking in north Georgia

Fall is here and I think we may have found another fall tradition. Dylan and I took a trip to the BJ apple orchard in north Georgia for the first time to try apple picking. I learned Elija referred to as “the apple capital of Georgia” who knew?

A family friend recommended this specific orchard. Although it was 1.5 hours away from where we live . I was game for the drive. I must mention I don’t mind driving. 3 hours tops solo I’m game!

The drive to BJ was an easy ride up 400. The trees are so beautiful this time of the year which made for a peaceful ride. When you arrive. You will see the BJ orchards sign, you can’t miss it. first thing you will see is the store that looks like a cabin. This beautiful store has everything that are made from apples you could think of. I stuck my head in because I thought you had to purchase you’re ticket there first. You don’t. The store was packed so we didn’t get a chance to go in and shop around. However, we were directed across the street from the store for U-Pick.

The property is large enough for social distance. We went on a Tuesday. It was basically empty at the u-pick location. There are several rows. Which give you enough space to stay in a row alone with your family.
