Traveling the Georgia Grown Trail
We’re still on the road in South Georgia and have been visiting lots of farms, growers, wineries and more. The state is working hard to develop its agri-tourism business, and we’ve been forging a trail from Vidalia to Valdosta. Visiting the Vidalia Onion Museum and an onion farm, seeing where Georgia olives for the state’s first oil since the 1800s are grown, learning how to make and can pepper jelly at Lauri Jo’s in Norman Park and sipping muscadine slushies from Horse Creek Winery are just a few of the things we’ve done so far. And there’s more to come before we fly home on Tuesday. Here’s a peek at these wonderful places, which we’ll of course tell you lots more about when we return!
