Farm & Ranch in Emory
The farm opened in 2013. The Alford Family farm offers a diverse number of sustainable and organic crops. They have blueberries and blackberries (close to 4000 trees). Additionally, they grow muscadine grapes, peaches (150 trees), and pecans (370 trees). Moreover, they have a variety of vegetables (cucumbers, onions, peppers, tomatoes, squash, zucchinis, and more).Although they seem pretty new in the farming business, they have already received multiple awards with their outstanding effort.What people love about this farm is their U-Pick project. They allow everyone to experience farm life by picking and interacting with animals. Some of the animals you can spend time with are oreo-cookie cows, red waddle pigs, and Cornish corn chickens.A patron even described it as ‘A beautiful slice of heaven on earth!’If you are up for a countryside farming experience, be sure to mark May to July on your calendar and visit them!
