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 & veggie farms, bakeshops, wineries, B&Bs, 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!

It's been great to see so many new folks liking us recently – welcome! We thought it was time for an introduction for those 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 much more.⁠
⁠
🍏 Our farms are located throughout Camino and Pollock Pines. You can find a map of all of them at AppleHill.com, along with information on each farm, apple varieties, a harvest calendar, and you-pick farms! ⁠
⁠
🍎 October is our busy time of year, but our fall season runs September – November. So 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 welcome in the outside areas at most farms. ⁠
⁠
🍎 Many of our farms and wineries are open year-round, offering a wide range of fruits and vegetables, many you-pick!⁠
⁠
🍏 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.⁠
⁠
🍎 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!⁠

⁠
They make great gifts, whether for you or someone else!⁠
⁠
Hours:⁠
Friday - Sunday 9-5
While our Growers are known for apples and donuts, it's the pies you don't want to miss! 🥧⁠
⁠
Whether you prefer yours fresh-baked or unbaked frozen (perfect for the holidays!), discover an array of delicious pies to choose from. Like @appleridgefarms 10" apple pie, pictured here!⁠
⁠
