The Rock Ranch – Upcoming Fall Family Fun Events

I can’t believe Fall is already upon us. If you are looking for some FUN Fall Family Events, then head over to The Rock Ranch, founded by the late S. Truett Cathy of Chick-fil-A. My family loves spending time at The Rock Ranch. It is a beautiful 1,500 acre working cattle ranch located about an hour south of Atlanta in Upson County. It’s a place where families, school groups, and even businesses can come to enjoy what we call “agritourism.” The Rock Ranch is dedicated to “Growing Healthy Families!”
