50 Lane Rd, Fort Valley, GA
Featuring 11,000 acres of peach and pecan orchards as well as strawberry patches, Lane Southern Orchards has been passed down in the family generation by generation for over 100 years. Thanks to over a century of peach harvest seasons, its home city of Fort Valley is recognized as the "Peach Capital" of Georgia...it's even located in Peach County. With so many families returning to the orchard each year to get a taste of some of the state's finest peaches, Lane added a Roadside Market so you can buy just-picked produce and bring home a "taste of Georgia". Jams, jellies, syrup, peach pastries, Vidalia onions and pecans by the pound can be purchased in-person or even online. Spend the day perusing the store and once you've built up an appetite, head over to the orchard's restaurant, PeachTree Cafe & Bakery, for some of the finest pulled pork and world-famous peach cobbler, you'll ever have! Be sure to make it to their U-Pick Strawberry patch each Spring through late May! Lane also features several events during the holidays and for those popular summer months, kids can play on the farm-themed playground and end the day with a sweet homemade peach treat.
