Wouldn’t it be nice when you can take a walk down the road, see familiar faces and sample the apples that are being sold on the street? This is exactly one of the draws in Ellijay, Georgia. It’s because Ellijay is considered as the apple capital in Georgia.
Based on some records, it was learned that it was Gilmer County that first began growing the apples at the start of the 20th century. The shift to the orchard and the apples effectively reduced the dependence of North Georgia on cotton. During the 1920s the so-called cotton bust affected the area and this was brought about by drought and the boll weevil, and the cotton plants were affected. Not the orchard and the apples though. And because of this, the Gilmer County suffered less than their surrounding counties. Right now, the Gilmer County produces more apples as compared to the other counties in the state.
The best days to sample the apples and the scenic views of the county is during autumn, the time when the beauty of the orchard takes a grandiose change. This is the time as well when the rest of the country descends to Gilmer County to participate in the now-popular Apple Festival. These are the reasons why this county continues to get a significant chunk of the visitors of the state and the reasons as well why Ellijay living is a hit for those who seek relaxing living experience.
