Southern Belle Farm : Four seasons of farm fun
I visited Southern Belle Farm: Mcdonough, Ga at the beginning of Fall this year. What a amazing experience. We taste-tested strawberry ice cream, watched pig races and explored the farm. Southern Belle Farm in Henry County is one of the great family-owned farms in Ga, reaching back three generations!
I was amazed to learn about the 40+ activities offered here, including a new Country Market, and so much more. I’m anxious to visit in every season, and I want you to go, too!
Christmas tree farm excitement in Winter
Have you ever skipped Home Depot or Walmart, and picked a Christmas tree from a farm before? It’s magical…it just adds a new dimension to the holiday experience. Head to Southern Belle Farm to select a fresh-picked Frasier Fir. They help you shake it and bale it for the ride home. You can also pick out wreaths and greenery, try a few homemade cookies or listen to carolers.
On weekend guests can visit with Santa. Bring your camera for photos and save time for a hayride. Visits to the farm are free, but some activities (like the Jumping Pillow, the funny Cow Train and Pedal Carts) are a nominal fee. Ask about the Winter FunPass to save!
Strawberry picking in Spring
Have you tried the strawberry ice cream at Southern Belle Farm? There is no doubt that it is the best strawberry goodness I have ever put in my mouth! From about April to June, you can explore the 5-acre berry patch of Southern Belle, taking home berries, recipes and other farm goodies.
In addition to u-pick strawberries, you’ll see chickens, donkeys, cows and calves, goats, horses and more. On weekends, enjoy other activities like Belle’s Barn, Jumping Pillow, Cow Train, Pedal Cars and a Hayride.
Blueberry and blackberry U-pick in Summer
You pick the prize berries on 2-acres of vines and bushes. You can also check out the Farm Stand full of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and other delicious veggies. Enjoy the same animal and farm activities in summer as you did in Spring. One of my favorite little known activities is the kindness garden. Pick your own sunflowers and zinneas for free – and pass on that kindness to someone else.
Pumpkin picking, corn mazes and pig races in Fall
Fall is a special time at Southern Belle Farm, with 2-acres of pumpkins, 7-acres of corn maze and a host of other exciting ways to welcome in the cooler days of fall. Fall season runs from mid-September to early November.
The Georgia corn maze changes yearly, with multiple levels of difficulty. Those who want the ultimate challenge can bring their flashlights for a romp after sundown.
Farm Admission includes: Cornfield maze(s), a Hayride over the 330-acre farm, the Cow Train ride, Corn Cannon – 3 shots, Jumping Pillow, Racing Pedal Carts, Giant Tunnel Slide, Kiddie Korral, Corn Box, Rubber Duck Races, meeting our Barnyard Animals, Goat Walk and (my favorite!!!) ….Pig Races.
If you really want to create a memorable fall moment for the family, rent one of the fire pits on the farmland. You pay a fee for the rolling campfire…bring your own hotdogs and s’mores, or pay a small additional fee for Southern Belle Farm to bring the picnic to you.
