This superb 415-acre property has been set aside for agricultural research, development and education, lies within the rolling foothills and farm lands in south central Union County. The Center is a branch of the University of Georgia’s Department of Agriculture. The Center’s focus is on the area’s bio-diverse nature of the Southern Appalachian Ecosystem, and how they can contribute to the survival of a great variety of plant species with properties suitable for medicinal, craft and culinary uses.

The Georgia Mountain Research and Interpretive Center saw its’ beginning in 1935 as the Jarrett Apple House & Orchards. Previously known as the historic Christa’s Farmhouse built in 1898. Today, gracing the front yard of the historic farmhouse, is a first-rate herb garden and informational kiosk.
