Best prices Two Years in a row

For the second year in a row I found Larsen's to be the place to buy my apples on my annual trek to Apple Hill orchards. They also have terrific apple cider.

They have one of the biggest varieties of apples on Apple Hill. Our favourite type of apple is the Pink Lady, a pink in color and generally sweeter apple, and to date Larsen's is one of only two apple farms that grow them, and theirs are by far the best. There are a few other types that are more unusual... More

Rainbow has the best appple donuts on the planet. We always pick up coffee in Placerville and start our annual Apple Hill visit at Rainbow so we can enjoy these decadent treats.

Larsen's is our favorite place to buy apples on Apple Hill. Good selection and excellent quality. They close at dusk on Friday and all day Saturday - so plan accordingly. If you have time, be sure to visit their museum.

Sour Cream apple pie is delicious. Veggieburgers are yummy. Or bring your own lunch and hang out on the grass-covered meadow and listen to the waterfall. Then pick up a couple lugs of apples to bring home. Great variety. Check out the farm museum. Seasonal.

Larsen's is a great place to hang out on a trip up to Apple Hill for our annual apple fix. They have a lot of apple products and they're good at what they do. We never miss stopping there on our tour of local Apple Hill growers, highly recommended for the quality of their products.

The really neat thing about this place is the museum! It is such a great place to spend a day. The park across the street is pretty cool.
