Southern Belle Strawberry Picking (McDonough)
Updated: Apr 23, 2022
This information was from the last season and I will update it once they officially do.
Southern Belle Farm is a 330 acre working farm located at 1658 Turner Church Road, McDonough, GA 30252 and is about 1.5 hours south of Milton. When you drive there, it feels like it is in the middle of no where. I would suggest you have a full tank of gas as there are limited amounts of gas stations or places to eat along the way.
They do suggest you call ahead and make sure they day you go they have some rip to pick. 770.288.2582
There have a huge parking lot and they can fit many school buses and cars. After you park, you can get out and pay.
From their site: STRAWBERRY SEASON Our 7-acre berry patch is open during the spring and early summer season. If you are looking for a fun time on the farm, come out and pick strawberries straight from the patch. If you are looking for pre-picked berries come to our farm market during our peak season. We provide one gallon buckets for your picking. After picking the berries you may empty them into containers that you bring from home or you may keep the picking bucket for $1.00. You can bring that bucket back next time you pick.
Picking Hours: Our spring picking hours are dependent on berry availability, so it’s always best to call ahead, 770.288.2582.

For field trips, there is also a station for each student to plant a lima bean to take home, see baby cows, view a cow being milk and learned some facts about it, learn about honey bees, and take a hay ride. We take our kindergartners here every year and they love it. They will each get a free ice cream.
