applehill.com5 Official Apple HillSM Grower app Download the Official Apple Hill Grower app TODAY! www.applehill.com/#app Welcome to Apple Hill! We hope you enjoy the over 50 farms of our association - each farm is unique, but connected through being farm families of this beautiful area of Camino. Since the 1960s (some farms well before that), we have tended to the orchards, vineyards, berries, lavender, Christmas trees and much more! It is very rewarding watching all of you enjoy the fruits of our labor for the last half of a century.

Being the son of one of our co-founders of the Apple Hill Growers Association brings responsibility and pride. Many men and women have worked very hard for our family farms to be generational and our visitors each year have helped make that possible. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for visiting year over year and hope that continues for many more generations to come. As always, our advice is to drive around our scenic roads and check out new farms you may not have visited before as well as your family favorites to embrace the difference that each farm brings to this beautiful place. We will see you soon!
