As we wave goodbye to 2023, Southern Belle Farm is gearing up for an even more exciting year ahead! A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for all of our seasons—it’s been a blast creating memories with you. We’d love your feedback on your experience at the farm! Please take a moment to answer our Survey so we can continue to make Southern Belle Farm a place you want to return to year after year.
Making family traditions come alive on our farm is what we love most, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon! Before we dive headfirst into 2024, let’s take a stroll down memory lane.
Spring on the Farm
Spring at Southern Belle Farm is such a fun time because everyone is ready to get out of doors after winter is done for some much-needed fun. And during spring, with all of our fun seasons on the horizon, it makes this time even more fun knowing there are more exciting seasons to come!
Last spring, we picked buckets of the sweetest berries in the south! Each spring, guest come from all over to enjoy our U-Pick Strawberries, play all day at our outdoor Activities, and eat their weight in our famous Strawberry Shortcake topped with whipped cream and homemade ice cream! Not to mention, we open our Country Market back up as well so everyone can stock up on their favorite southern belle & local goods – jams, jellies, preserves, honey, local produce, pickles, ciders, and freshly baked treats from Mimi’s Bakery! Our Spring Season begins roughly in April, but it all depends on Mother Nature! We will keep everyone updated on our social media, so you’ll be ready to come pick berries as soon as they are ripe!
Summer on the Farm
Our Summer Season may even top spring because you get not only strawberries, but the rest of our summer u-pick fruits—peaches, blueberries, blackberries, muscadines, plus our u-pick flowers! While we love all of our summer U-picks, Georgia is the peach state so we have to give extra props to our peaches—you’ll have to pay us a visit this year and pick some for yourself! The only thing better is probably our homemade peach ice cream and cobbler! And since the kids are out of school, you can make a whole day of your visit. Tons of guests came out last year to enjoy everything our summer season has to offer. Come enjoy our outdoor Activities, pick your favorite fruits, and cool off with a strawberry slushie in our Country Market this summer!
Fall on the Farm
Fall at Southern Belle Farm is always a crowd favorite and our past season was no different! There’s nothing like a good fall festival to celebrate the season and we think ours is the best. Last year, we cheered on our racing pigs, got lost in the corn maze, picked our favorite pumpkins from the patch, slid down our Giant Barnstormer Slide, and so much more. And since the weather cools down during our fall season, it’s the perfect time to enjoy our Activities. We have plenty of seasonal treats like apple cider donuts & kettle corn, and we even invite food trucks to come out occasionally!
Christmas on the Farm
We always end the year with a big “Merry Christmas!” during A Farmstead Christmas on the farm! Santa comes down for a visit to take photos with the kids and help everyone complete their Christmas card photos. Last year, we made the season extra special with our Donut Breakfast with Santa event where we invited guests to enjoy treats, games, and photos with Santa. We even had our first Christmas Market! Belle’s Christmas Market Day featured over 50 special vendors, offering an array of unique products and gifts for the holiday season. We hope to host another market this year!
Thank You & See You Soon!
