    "We love this place. It does not look like a nursery. There are creeks and lakes and two of the oldest Bradford pear trees in Georgia. There is the original Fortson school there to go through and there is still writing on the original chalkboard and the walls! And the pumpkin patch is one of the nicest I have been too. They do grow their own plants and flowers on site in a greenhouse. We love going to the Pumpkin Patch every year. This nursery has a human maze pumpkin patch that we love. There are 100,000 lbs of pumpkins of all sizes and a hayride too. There is no cost to go which was nice. The pumpkins were great and they had a tasting tent on the weekend of recipes you can make from pumpkins and gourds. They do have a restroom and its only in the month of October. Yes they took credit cards. Hours were Monday through Saturday 8-6 and Sunday 12-5. They also do school field trips in the daytime during the school week "
