Spring into Fun at Southern Belle Farm!

As the weather begins to warm up and the flowers start to bloom, it’s time to shake off the winter blues and enjoy the outdoors. There’s no better place to do that than at Southern Belle Farm in McDonough, Georgia! Our family-owned farm has been a favorite destination for generations, and springtime is when it really comes alive with a variety of fun activities for all ages.

One of the highlights of spring at Southern Belle Farm is our U-Pick Strawberries. From April through early summer, the farm’s fields are bursting with ripe, juicy strawberries just waiting to be picked from our 18-acre strawberry patch. Visitors can purchase a container and head out into the fields to fill it up with as many strawberries as they can carry. It’s a great activity for families, groups of friends, or anyone who loves fresh, sweet berries. We’ll also have pre-picked berries when available if you prefer to swing by for a quick berry fix!

We will have special hours available for Spring Break this year! Join us April 3rd-9th:

Monday-Friday: 10am-5pm
Saturday: 10am-6pm
