Experience Ag on Trail 37
Posted on March 25, 2021 12:00 AM
Trail 37, Georgia’s first official agritourism highway, takes travelers on a gorgeous tour of South Georgia’s bountiful ag country. This 157-mile trek stretches east to west from Homerville to Fort Gaines, and features small towns, family farms and country roads. Along the way, you can pick your own peaches, sip muscadine wine, shop locally-made products and sample unique dishes from true farm-to-table restaurants. Jump in the car, grab your Farm Passport, roll down the windows and take it all in.
Still Pond Vineyard
Founded in 2003 in Calhoun, Still Pond Vineyard is now one of the largest commercial vineyards in Georgia. They produce 19 different muscadine wines, some fortified and some infused with berry and fruit flavors. During your visit, sample wines, take a tour or stroll along the pond that inspired the winery’s name.

Georgia Olive Farms
Five farmers came together in 2009 with a dream to resurrect olive oil production in Georgia. In 2011, Georgia Olive Farms harvested their first commercial crop of olives from their groves near Lakeland. They produce two varieties of pure, first cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oil called Arbequina and Chef’s Blend.
