Panorama Farm MarketPanorama has an orchard, all you see is the farm market situated right along side a highway, so it sees a lot of tourist traffic.  Consequently, their prices are a bit higher than the others.  They have a very good selection and a huge number of pumpkins, plus homemade fried apple pies, apple butter, Ellijay apple bread and more!  They're very helpful and friendly!

More about Panorama

 Panorama Orchards and Farm Market is a family fruit farm established in the 1920’s to produce and market apples. Today we have available more than 20 varieties of apples, as well as peaches, and fall vegetables. This production, along with a variety of apple related products and baked goods from our own kitchens, is sold direct to the public at our farm market.

Over the years, we’ve changed from primarily wholesale to a diversified retail store. Our present facility was constructed in 1983, and contains an apple packing line, cold storage for 10,000 bushels, bakery kitchens, and a retail sales area.

We have fresh North Georgia strawberries for sale during the month
of May while supplies last! Come see us!
