The trip will take place Wednesday, July 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Trip attendees will meet at the church campus at 2715 Peachtree Street Northeast, Atlanta, at 9 a.m. The cost is $ 20 per person, not including the money needed for lunch and for Pearson Farm.

Included in the trip is a stop at Grits Cafe in Forsyth, but attendees will need their own money for lunch. Established in 1999, Grits Cafe serves classic American dishes as well as southern delectables like fried green tomatoes.

At the farm, attendees will have the chance to indulge in everything Pearson Farm has to offer, including their peaches, signature flavored pecans, cakes, pies, jellies, preserves and more.

“For more than 135 years, the land we know as Pearson Farm has supported the growth of authentic Georgia-grown peaches and pecans as well as the growth of the five generations of family that pioneered it,” the Pearson Farm website said. “The core elements remain the same today - good soil, hard work, honest dealings, family, and faith.”
