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!

What's happening with the Apple Hill Growers


It's with great sadness that we share the news that Ron Mansfield of @goldbudfarms, another of our Apple Hill Growers family, passed away Sunday. ⁠
Ron was an icon in our community. He was a staunch advocate for and a champion of agriculture, particularly in our area but also county-wide. He served on the Ag Commission for many years and was involved in many efforts to highlight the contributions of agriculture to our community. Always willing to share his knowledge and experience, he guided and mentored many local farmers during his lifetime, particularly in our area. ⁠
He has been an active member of the Apple Hill Family for many years.  He was a true farmer and implemented many practices and innovations that have improved fruit growing and marketing of agricultural crops. Ron's legacy of love for farming lives on as his family continues to operate Goldbud Farms successfully. ⁠
A Celebration of Life will be held for him on April 13 at 1 pm at David Girard Vineyards in Placerville, CA.⁠

We are saddened to learn of the passing of High Hill’s own Jerry Visman. A longtime supporter of the Growers Association, his energy and dedication to El Dorado County’s agriculture was integral to our organization’s growth. 

We send his family, team, and all who knew him our deepest condolences. Jerry will be greatly missed by our Apple Hill Grower family of farmers.

Wine lovers, here’s a pro tip for you. 🍷 Winter is the perfect time for wine tasting at our Apple Hill Grower wineries. The mild winter weather ☀️ + fewer crowds make for a delightfully relaxed experience. You may even meet a winemaker or two! ⁠
Our wineries make a great stop before or after your next Tahoe ski trip. ⛷⁠
