During apple season, late Aug thru Nov, the apple ranches in the Placerville are open to the public. Most ranches sell their share of fresh & delicious apples, fresh apple cider/juice, pies, bbq's, candies, arts & crafts. Our family loves High Hill Ranch they have all of the above plus some. There is a fairly large fishing pond that is... More

I go every year during the fall for pies, apples, cider, candy and fudge and for the kids to play. They love fishing in the pond or riding the ponies. There are crafts from all the local vendors and the food is great and you can buy great gifts for the holidays.

High Hill is one of our favorite ranches! We especially love all the crafters and always find some treasure we can't live without. The caramel apples are huge and they offer many specialty food items. The pies are good and travel well. This ranch is ALWAYS crowded, even on weekdays and some parking is actually in the orchards. I would... More

This is where locals go for pie. They also serve food and have activities. Best to go mid-week during the season (Fall) as traffic on weekends is so bad you can't get near the entrance. If you need to go on a weekend, go in early September. Service is poor. It's not the servers but the way they have the... More

The summer is probably the best time to visit as that is when the crafters are there to sell their articles. Food is very good and the pies are excellent! Can buy a variety of fruit, good, etc. there also.
