While growing up in the rural areas of Georgia, farming, and canning became a way of life for Robert Sr. & Patsy Mitcham. During high school, Robert was active in agriculture and his local FFA chapter. He helped in running a canning plant at that school and later became an agriculture teacher and lead in the running of the local canning plant for Rabun County.
Now three generations run the cannery, farm and agritourism operations at Hillside Orchard Farms. We pride ourselves in helping other farmers with finding uses for their fruits and vegetables that need some TLC. We also love showing the public a little more about growing, fun on the farm and good food.
The Mitcham’s are happy to be a family farm and love to be in Rabun County, the Farm to Table capital. Please Come to see what all we have to offer and do not leave without a Fried Apple pie or two.
