Bighairymike shares, "Now there is a county I would be proud to call home.I figured you made a typo and really meant Macon county but I looked it up and there really is a Bacon county in Georgia too."

"Bacon County, in southeast Georgia, was named for U.S. senator Augustus Octavius Bacon, who served four terms and was president pro tempore of the Senate in 1912"


The county seat is Alma, Georgia. I've spent a lot of time there. My brother keeps bees in Bacon County. His first wife was from Alma, Georgia. It's a huge blueberry producing region now and they pay my brother to pollinate their blueberries. It is also a decent swamp holly and gallberry honey producing area. Gallberry is a member of the holly family. It makes a real light mild flavored premium honey.

There are probably a lot of Mexicans living in Bacon County, Georgia because they do agricultural work and Southeast Georgia is a huge agricultural area, growing melons, cucumbers, squash, blueberries, etc. It is also close to Vidalia, Georgia so they probably also grow sweet onions there too.,_Georgia
