Lane Southern Orchards, Fort Valley, Georgia

Using my ever-trusty guide book, we decided to break up our drive from Savannah to Atlanta by stopping in Fort Valley Georgia, all in all a 60mile detour. Georgia is famous for its peaches and Fort Valley is home of the Lane Packing Company: peach and pecan farm, cafĂ©, restaurant, and according to my book, home of the country’s best peach cobbler. There are plenty of other food choices available on site but we were there for one thing only.

I’ve never really been a fan of cooked fruit, but given we were in the heart of peach country, I had to give it a go. The detour was definitely worth it! The cobbler was absolutely delicious and I’ve been converted. Of course, a small serving was more than enough for Dad and I to share. The cobbler was crunchy and firm on top and sweet and gooey in the middle. The peaches were so flavoursome and not too mushy. Combining the cobbler with their peach soft-serve ice-cream that perfectly melted into cracks of the hot gooey cobbler, gave the dessert a great hot/cold contrast; it was perfect.
