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 in Apple Hill

@applehillofficial

It’s been great to see so many new folks liking us recently – welcome! We thought it was time for an introduction for those of you who may not know much about us. 🍎 🍏⁠
⁠
We’re the Apple Hill Growers Association, 50+ family-run farms and ranchers, located about an hour from Sacramento, just east of Placerville. ⁠
⁠
A few facts about us.⁠
⁠
🍎 While our namesake is apples, our farms produce much more than that! Think pumpkins, Christmas trees, wine, stone fruits, vegetables, lavender, blueberries, and more.⁠
⁠
🍏 Our farms are located throughout Camino and Pollock Pines. Find a map of them at AppleHill.com, along with information on each farm, apple varieties, a harvest calendar, and you-pick farms! ⁠
⁠
🥧 Love baked goods? Our bake shops have a wide range of homemade fresh and frozen treats, including pies, donuts, fritters, candy, jams and sauces, plus gluten-free and nut-free options.⁠
⁠
🍁 October is our busy time of year, but our fall season runs from September – November. If you'd like to avoid crowds, consider visiting in September or November or during the week.⁠
⁠
🐶  Our farms are dog friendly! Well-behaved, leashed dogs are allowed in the outside areas at most farms. ⁠
⁠
🍷 Several farms and wineries are open year-round, offering everything from award-winning wines to fruits and vegetables.⁠
⁠
📱  Not all our farms are on Instagram, and those that aren't are well worth exploring! You can see the complete list at AppleHill.com/Growers or on our free app, which you can find on our website.⁠
⁠
👩‍🌾 Our Growers are all small, family-run farms dedicated to sharing the magic of community and agriculture with you. We hope to see you here soon!⁠

It’s not just apples and pumpkins being harvested right now. 🍁🍇 It’s also a busy time of year at our wineries! If you’ve ever wanted a BTS look at the winemaking process, don’t miss @boegerwinery’s harvest tours, available through October.⁠
⁠
Enjoy ripe fruit straight off the vine, sample fermenting juice, and spend two hours sipping wine and strolling through their lovely grounds as you learn about their history!⁠

U-Pick Apple Update: 🍎 While several farms will have apples available (along with apple products), only @pineomineranch and @smokeyridgefarmstand will have u-pick apples this year. Come up early to ensure the best availability! ⁠
⁠
🍏  We may not have as many u-pick apples this season, but we’ll still have all the pies, apple jams and sauces that you love. Plus, plenty of other crops like pumpkins, flowers, chestnuts, and Christmas trees! 🎃🎄🌸⁠
⁠
🍩  Our bake shops will have donuts, fritters, pies, and other delicious treats, and all the family experiences like craft fairs, play areas, pony rides, and hayrides will still be up and running.⁠
⁠
🍁 We know you love coming up with your families in the fall. We encourage you to continue your tradition and enjoy our farms this season. Your visits keep our farms and community thriving. 🙏⁠
