Candler County Recommendations
Everything is better in Metter, including the people and the Georgia Grown options! Hop off I-16 and start your experience with Wanda and Jasmine at the Metter Welcome Center and Georgia Grown retail shop, where you can sample a taste of town, enjoy the pond scenery while sipping a cold cola, and then decide what to visit first. Guido Gardens features a chapel open 24/7 where you can get your zen on and walk the azalea gardens, or go to HK Farms to take a trail ride and sample uniquely grown items like plantains. Take a safari van tour featuring watusi cattle, camels, zebra, emus and more at Wild Georgia Animal Park. Pick up Better Fresh Farms lettuce mix at the farm market and enjoy an overnight retreat at Lucy's Gathering Place, or watch a tobacco harvest from the front porch of Dutch Ford Farm. Back in town, Ben will give you a sharp haircut at the Heritage shop, and Trapnell Park offers lovely greenspace in the center of it all. Stay tuned for the Georgia Grown video featuring Metter as a pilot Georgia Grown Town!
