Apple Hill Days

October to December – 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.
