We have had requests for written directions to Fern Ridge Farms in addition to the map supplied. We have added directions from Atlanta, Rome, Chattanooga and Birmingham.


As most of our visitors use some type of GPS to get to Fern Ridge Farms we have a few words of caution for you. Fern Ridge Farms has a Cedar Bluff address, but beautiful Weiss Lake is between us and the town of Cedar Bluff, Alabama. Your GPS may direct you to Cedar Bluff and from there to Fern Ridge Farms. We are very much closer to the Centre/Leesburg area.
