King of Pops buys farm near Douglasville

Atlanta’s popular popsicle maker King of Pops has bought a 68-acre farm near Douglasville.

The tract known as Daniell Nursery has been operating since 1970 and includes a horse stable.

King of Pops will use the land to grow fresh ingredients and Christmas trees, as well as to host farm-to-table events, according to The Shumacher Group Inc., an Atlanta-based restaurant brokerage and consulting firm.

“Their business is growing,” said Peter Kruskamp with The Shumacher Group, who represented King of Pops in the deal.
