We made our annual trek up the hill to spend a beautiful day in Apple Hill. Apple Hill is about an hour drive out of Sacramento on highway 50. It is a beautiful place to drive to and visit all the apple orchards. There are over 50 ranches from everything from apple orchards, berry farms, organic produce and Christmas trees. It is always a fun way to spend the day. We have our little routine when we go to Apple Hill. We always stop at High Hill Ranch first. The boys love to run around and roll down the hills there. They also have a trout pond where you can fish. There are lots of crafters with their wares for sale and of course all things apple. As we wind our way around the ranches we work our way to Rainbow Orchards. They have the best apple cider donuts. They are made fresh for you ! We also picked up fresh apple cider and of course apples. Since hubby was able to come with us, we had to make a stop at Jack Russell Brewery. The boys ran all over their grounds and played on their rocks will hubby was able to sample their brews. Overall, it turned out to be a beautiful day.
