Eckert's Country Store & Farms
The quaint comfort of picking a ripe peach off a limb on a warm, breezy summer day isn't distinct to Georgia -- that experience can be had right here in Grafton!
Eckert's Country Store & Farms, high up on the bluffs along the Mississippi River in Jersey County, specializes in hand-picked peaches and blackberries in the summer, and apples and pumpkins when the fall air turns crisp. The Grafton Country Store offers guest favorites, including Eckert’s fresh produce, apple cider, apple and pumpkin butter, honey, Amish salsas, jams and jellies and limited bakery treats from their Belleville bakery department.
During late September and October, entertainment is offered during the weekends and includes carnival rides, pony and camel rides, the Golden Goat Bridge, a petting farm and miniature golf. There is no admission charge to enter the farm.
