Join us on September 17 for a one-of-a-kind agricultural and culinary experience you won’t soon forget. Georgia’s best chefs fill the picnic baskets for GFA’s signature eventure, Picnic on the Farm. Guests will receive a blanket and picnic basket with a 3-course, chef-created lunch to share with friends or family anywhere on the farm. In 2022, we are celebrating all things about Georgia’s newest commodity: Wine and Grapes. Guests will enjoy beer and wine, live music, farm tours, silent auction, lawn games and other kids’ activities, against the beautiful backdrop of North Georgia’s wine country.
