Plenty of Time to Visit Apple Hill and Pick Apples
Hill Growers Association (AHGA), located in Camino, Cedar Grove,
Placerville and Pollock Pines, CA, was once a fledgling association comprised
of 5 ranches.
Growers on these ranches began with a well-founded hope in strong
families and a future in farming traditions. Many of the original families have
passed those traditions on to the next generations.
The Association will be celebrating 50 years in 2014 and has over 50 ranches including fruit growers, bake shops,
wineries, a micro-brewery, a spa and Christmas tree growers.
“Thoughts of the spring blossom season in our
orchards, fields and vineyards sustain us during the long winters and give time
for planning improvements for the coming season,” said Lynn Larsen, AHGA
President. “As the summer season approaches, we welcome our new and returning
guests that visit our year-round wineries, brewery and fruit stands.
local berries, cherries, pears, peaches and a large variety of fabulous apples
supply us with fruits from May through December. Fall pumpkins and gourds color
the way to the Christmas season that opens with choosing a fresh tree from our
many tree growers.” Larsen also suggests visitors will enjoy the beautiful
scenic drive on country roads that lead to all of the activities offered.
