Strawberry Season 2018
Dickey Farms is home to Georgia’s oldest, continuously operating peach packinghouse. In 1936, Robert L. “Mr. Bob” Dickey built the packinghouse with lumber hewn off his own land. Today, the long white building is a prominent landmark in historic Musella, Georgia.
During peach season, our guests love to watch peaches come in from the orchards and out to the grocery stores. Our scenic peach packinghouse is an open-air facility complete with a gift shop, market and rocking chairs to watch the peaches being packed in-house.
We serve a variety of baked goods, farmers market vegetables, ice cream, vintage drinks and an assortment of marketplace items to shop from. Located right in the middle of the heartland of Georgia, historic Musella GA is a small town that will have you feeling like you’ve ‘stepped back in time’.
We’re just a short drive from Metro Atlanta – making it the perfect country day trip for your family. See our seasonal calendar of events on our ‘Events’ page to find out what’s going on during your visit! Of course – every day during peach season we have our open-air market, tours and our award winning peach ice cream!
Church, Senior and Hobby Groups
Our farm is a favorite among churches, senior groups and hobbyist organizations for good reason: At Dickey Farms, you can truly feel like you’re ‘stepping back in time’. Our oversized rocking chairs are perfect for looking out over picturesque historic Musella, Georgia or watching our peaches being packed right on the line.
Educational Tours and Farm Field Trips
Farm field trips are the best kind of field trips! Our field trips vary according to what season we’re in at the farm and the activities are tailored to meet students appropriate age level. We focus on teaching students a ‘field to fork’ curriculum to understand the importance of where their food comes from, farming and Georgia agriculture.
Watch peaches come in from the orchards and out to the grocery stores! We offer daily tours of our packinghouse during peach season. Gather in the packinghouse outside of the office and join us for a guided tour around the grounds.
