THE COTTON FAIR
Gay, GA 30218
A diverse landscape consisting of over 3,800 acres of rolling hills, wooded trails, a bamboo forest, two beautiful lakes, and both Red Oak Creek and the mighty Flint River flow steadily through the property.
Our working ranch is home to grazing cattle, a herd of Quarter Horses, and a bountiful flock of pastured chickens. Don’t be surprised if you also encounter a lamb or two during your stay with us and be sure to ask about our honeybees and unique apiary accommodations.
Quercus is a magical place where there are no strangers, and all who visit become family. A possibility to customize unique experiences, offer inspired farm-to-table meals, and encourage guests to take part in new experiences and opportunities.
At Towerhouse Farm Brewery, one of our long-term goals is to create a 100% born-and-raised farm to table beverage. We plan to grow and harvest every ingredient from the soil of the farm: yeast, water, hops, malt, and spices. In the Spring of 2020, we completed an 80-plant hop farm capable of producing hundreds of pounds of fresh Georgia grown hops. Additionally, Barley was planted in the winter of 2020 to test the viability of grain production on our farm. We hope to produce and enjoy some of the world's greatest beers. Join us on this venture.
Our farm brewery, housed in a repurposed tobacco barn, is designed for the merging of old-world traditions and flavors with new-world brewing technology. Each of our 56-gallon brewhouse kettles can brew 125 pounds of grain and 48 oz of hops to produce 200 magnum bottles worth of delightful Belgian beer.
The advantage of working at a small scale means that we can micro-focus on every step of the brewing process and ensure the finest quality product. Due to the small size of the kettles, every batch will differ slightly from one another, thus allowing us to produce a diverse portfolio of limited-run batches.
Big Red Oak Plantation is a nationally recognized sporting clays facility. It host many large, competitive events including the Georgia State shoot, past regional and national events, and SCTP competitions.
Come test your shooting ability on one of the three courses. Each course is unique and the difficulty level varies. There are targets available for all skill levels, and all shotgun gauges.
Located in the Piedmont region, Joe Kurz Wildlife Management Area is 3,700 acres and offers hunting opportunities for deer, turkey, small game, dove and quail.
