Whether we’re picking the perfect pumpkin or meandering through a corn maze, fall is our favorite season to go farm hopping across North Georgia. Here are a few farms to check out this season, each offering acres of fun and plenty of space in which to spread. Check websites for updated information and social distancing guidelines.
