BLUE RIDGE, Ga. – The Blue Ridge Cannery will open for the 2019 season on Thursday, July 11. The cannery provides a clean and convenient place to process vegetables and fruits for its customers each canning season.
Families have used the cannery for years and the tradition continues. The cannery allows customers to quickly process larger quantities of food than possible at home. The cannery is easier to clean as well.
Customers need to bring their products ready to pack and process as well as the supplies needed. Customers can choose whether to bring in their own glass jars which will be processed for 40 cents for each jar or metal cans may be obtained from the cannery and will be processed for 70 cents per can. First time users will be taught how to use the facility.
The cannery is located in the old State Farmers Market complex off East First Street.
The cannery will be open on July 11 and then on each Tuesday and Thursday in July, August, and September at 8 am with the exception of July 16 which it will be closed. The product must be ready for the cooker by 12 pm (noon).
For more information call 706-632-0208.
The cannery is managed by Rhonda Mathews Fannin County High School Agriculture Education Teacher, Emily Dean Fannin County High School Agriculture Education Teacher and Cherie White Fannin County Middle School Agriculture Education Teacher, and operated by the Fannin County Board of Education.
