Labor Day Weekend ... Apple Hill® season begins!

Those who have left the highway and driven through the orchards, vineyards and forests above Placerville know what Apple Hill is all about... Take the drive... try apple cider, donuts, fritters, pie, etc. This year there is a free Apple Hill Shuttle from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every weekend from Oct 2nd through Oct. 31st. The shuttle will be picking up visitors every 15-30 minutes all day long. The pick up site is Schnell School in Placerville. Located in Camino, CA, Apple Hill was once a fledgling association comprised of 16 original ranches. Today it boasts more than 50 ranches including Christmas tree growers, wineries, and vineyards. Free to the public. For more information either contact us and book a night at our bed and breakfast which is just minutes to all the goodies or call the Apple Hill Growers Association (530) 644-7692 or visit them on the web. We go up several times a season and get treats for us and sometimes for the guests for the next day's breakfast. Yummy!!

It is also a great time to see which Christmas tree farm you might want to visit to cut your own tree.
