With over 50 ranches, the Apple Hill Growers Association (AHGA) area has been a family destination since 1964. That's 50 years! A family trip to visit the Apple Hill Growers means so much more than just apples and pies.  It's memories that will last a lifetime! It's berry farms, u-pick apple ranches, and kid-friendly activities.  For the grown-ups, it's fine wines and handcrafted beers in an incredible Sierra-soaked setting. It's Christmas trees for as far as your group can wander.

On behalf of our wonderful Apple Hill Growers, we encourage you to make our little slice of heaven a part of your world.  It's a tradition you'll cherish forever!

For the Apple Hill Growers it isn't a fad- it's a tradition we have offered to our customers for 50 years.
