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!

Around the Bend in the Road…

One of the joys of visiting our farms is driving the back roads. While you may may feel remote and far off the beaten path at some of our ranches rest assured that NO farm is more than 5 miles from Highway 50. And, if you look at our map, http://www.applehill.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/CP2014_webmap.pdf, you'll see that everything loops back to Highway 50 (it has to- or you'll end up in the South Fork of the American River!) So if you have driven to our farms from an urban area don't be nervous that you will get lost.  ... READ MORE→
