Apple Hill Grower is located on a mountain planted with numerous apple trees. The association has a 50-year-old history. It began to convince customers to buy directly from farmers, and later turned into an agro-tourism destination for families all across northern California and western Nevada.

Ranches in the area offer various agricultural goods and activities on offer to local residents and visitors. At one of the ranches, Rainbow Orchards sells all types of apples and their products such as apple juice, jam, butter, syrup, vinegar as well as baked cider donuts, crisps, tarts and pies. The owner and workers are all from one family. They have maintained this simple working model for generations.

We happened to attend the Art in the Orchard, an event combining agriculture and art in the outdoors. Farmers and artists work together to create artworks for display and for sale. Visitors can enjoy farm-fresh baked goods, music, wearable art, photography and recitations in early September every year. Additionally, the Apple Hill Grower Association has organized three other apple-themed events all the year around – Apple Blossom Days in April, Johnny Appleseed's Birthday in September and the Apple Hill Harvest Run in November.

Free shuttle buses with two routes connect the area and El Dorado. Drivers are encouraged to leave their cars in the El Dorado Transit Station, enjoy the scenery, and do good for the environment at the same time. Those who buy freshly picked fruit from the trees (some buy Christmas trees and pumpkins for the festival season) can also easily carry the goods by car.
