Georgia has always been agriculturally rich, having a long-standing reputation for producing the highest quality peaches. But beyond peaches, Georgia is an abundant resource for a variety of vegetables, apples, Vidalia onions and many other fruits. It may surprise you to also know that Georgia is the number one perennial state in producing peanuts, chickens, pecans, and blueberries. Other top Georgia agriculture includes cotton, watermelon, rye, sweet corn, bell peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupes, and cabbage.
This may be why Georgia is such a popular destination for agritourism.
