Welcome in 2021 with open arms and a longing in our hearts to visit your favorite Apple Hill Ranches. Do not fret though as you still can get Apple Hill quality goods and treats from a lot of our growers. Some ranches have remained open and some are selling at Farmers’ Markets. Take a look to see who you can go visit and who might be selling right down the street from you at your local Farmers’ Market.
Open Right Now
Wineries are open!
The Apple Hill Growers host many award-winning wineries that stay open all year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the wineries are offering tasting outside right now. It is a great time to visit your favorite winery to sample their wine in a unique setting that may never get to experience again. Check the website of your favorite winery before you go as most wineries are requiring you to make an appointment before you visit.
