It’s here! Time for apples, hay rides, donuts and cider. Now open… the Apple Hill Grower ranches, High Hill Ranch and Abel’s Apples Acres, with more ranches set to open later this month, it is sure to be a fantastic season. And if you are up our way, and see apples on the ground already, now worries! It’s a good thing. Our crops are so plentiful this year that thinning is needed to make for the sweetest and best apples!
