Apple Hill™ is known for its apple farms and family-friendly activities in the fall. Comprised of more than 50 ranches, the Apple Hill Growers Association (Apple Hill™ ) provides farm fresh fruit and vegetables, baked and canned goods, and crafts and entertainment. Most of the Apple Farms open their doors Labor Day weekend through December. But the rest of year you can find unique agricultural adventures and locally grown products down these bountiful backroads. Christmas Tree farms usually open Thanksgiving weekend but a few will open the week before. In the spring and summer berry farms and lavender farms open their doors. Wineries are open year round.
A Word on Parking and Traffic
It’s almost October and we all know what that means in the eastern part of El Dorado County: Apples, donuts, pies, cider, pumpkins, hay rides and all kinds of fun for everyone in and around Camino. But sometimes all that fun comes with a little too much….traffic! To make things more enjoyable for the traveling public as well as residents in the area who see an influx of 5,000 additional cars on any given weekend day, the new Apple Farms Shuttle was introduced which ran every Saturday and Sunday in October 2018. Check back for Shuttle details for the 2019 fall season.
