City

Alto Northeast Georgia Mountains

Thousands stop by Jaemor Farms on their way to and from a day in the mountains. This fifth generation farm offers farm fresh fruits and vegetables as well as fried pies, ice cream and boiled peanuts. Just picked strawberries in late spring can’t be beat, nor can pumpkins and a corn maze in the fall. Stop by and find out why it will become a favorite of your whole family.
