Escabar_MimiThe members of the Apple Hill Growers Association are ready for visitors with a great selection of apples — including Braeburn, Empire, Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Jonathons, McIntosh, Mutsu, Red Delicious and Rome. It is a good idea to check with the ranches for a current apple list because the ranches are at different elevations and the fruit is ready at different times. There are also plenty of pumpkins, gourds and other neat things for holiday decorating. Plus while roaming around there is hot apple pie, cider and other treats at the bake shops. Go to info@applehill.com for more information.
