Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

Near the Sierra foothill town of Placerville, just off the beaten path between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe are the Apple Hill Growers. We are an agriculture community with a rich history in farming and winemaking where a new generation of growers invites you to share the experience with your family and friends.

Delicious, sweet apples are just the beginning.

Representing over 50 local, family farms, the Apple Hill Growers are dedicated to supporting agriculture in our community.  Founded in 1964 with just 16 apple ranches, we’ve now grown to include unique fruit & vegetable farms, bakeshops, wineries, a Bed & Breakfast Inn, flower gardens, and Christmas tree farms. Our winding roads and scenic beauty have been a popular destination for over 50 years.   Come enjoy the fruits of our Apple Hill Growers any time of year!

We’re heartbroken to share that one of our most loved and cherished members, Donna O’Halloran, of @ohalloransappleranch, passed away recently at the age of 95. ⁠
⁠
O’Halloran’s Apple Trail Ranch is well known for producing a large variety of quality apples over the years. Apple farming was not new to Donna as she grew up on an apple farm in the Yakima Valley in Washington state. Her farm was the first to grow and offer pick-your-own pumpkins from the vine.⁠
⁠
Besides overseeing the running of O’Halloran’s Apple Trail Ranch, Donna was very active in the El Dorado County community. She was a member of St. Patrick Church, where she taught faith formation; a leader in the Camino Go-Getters 4-H Club; a substitute teacher; devoted parent volunteer at all school functions; and a stalwart member of the Apple Hill Growers Association. ⁠
⁠
Many of our younger AHG members remember “Mrs. O’Halloran” fondly as their substitute teacher at Camino School, as she made a special effort to take care of the local farm kids! ⁠
⁠
Donna served as our Board Secretary for several years and volunteered at many of the Apple Hill Official activities, including the county fair booth and state fair booth, the Press Picnic, and Harvest Run. ⁠
⁠
Over the 56 years of Apple Hill Growers membership, Donna was always willing to step up to help with any activities and events, and always with a huge smile. She embodied the spirit of the Apple Hill women in the early years - raising her family, giving to the community, and working hard. ⁠
⁠
Donna leaves behind her loving family of four sons, one daughter, 12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Donna’s daughter Kelly will continue managing the farm with assistance from her brothers and their families.⁠
⁠
Please keep the O’Halloran family in your thoughts and prayers as they navigate the world without their beloved Mom, Grandma, and Great-grandma.⁠
