Visit the most popular apple orchard and farm market in the North Georgia Mountains located near Ellijay, Georgia in Gilmer County. Take a great fall day trip to Hillcrest Orchards only 1 1/2 hours from downtown Atlanta, Georgia or Chattanooga, Tennessee. Hillcrest is family owned and operated and offers loads of fun for kids, adults and seniors. Pick your fun at the annual "Apple Pickin' Jubilee" where you can pick your own apples, milk a cow, watch live pig races, visit the petting farm, take a wagon ride through the orchard, visit the Moonshine Museum and watch live bands and cloggers on the Hillcrest Stage. Visit our playground and ride our giant slide down the mountain.
Come hungry because there's more food than you can hold. Visit our bakery and ice cream parlor for homemade fried apple pies, apple cider doughnuts, apple fritters, pizza, ice cream, fried oreos, funnel cakes and fudge. Wash it all down with some fresh cold apple cider. We'll have the grill fired up outside in the festival area for hamburgers, hotdogs and barbecue and roasted corn. Be sure to try the chicken on a stick and grilled corn on the cob.
Get your picture made on one of our live steers.
