The Long Creek area was the highest-producing apple region east of the Mississippi River in the 1950s. Today, Chattooga Belle Farm is a U-Pick farm, growing apples, peaches, berries, and a host of other fruits. The farm is also a popular wedding and event site and boasts an 18-hole disc golf course.
