Fujis - and more!


The orchard has 862 apple trees.  Approximately 600 are Fuji’s - the balance are Jonagold,  Empire,  Arkansas Black, Granny Smith,  Braeburn, and Winesap.   Depending on the variety,  and the particular year’s weather, harvest starts around late September and runs until about Thanksgiving.  We use  Integrated Pest Management [ http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/food/ipm.htm ]  IPM  consists of organic and non-restricted methods that results in minimum intervention.  We tree-ripen the apples for the best flavor and sweetness.  We sell at local and central valley farmer’s markets,  local markets,   and at our own fruit stand here at the ranch during harvest season. 

           Fruit Stand  and Farmer’s Market update        

                                Nov. 14, 2012

A great crop this year -  Fuji,  Arkansas Black,  and Granny Smith apples  are currently available at our ranch fruit stand.   Also  available are walnuts and apple blossom honey.

We are located at 5723 Oak Hill Road, Placerville, 95667.  ( Off Pleasant Valley Road turn on Oak Hill Road -  go 2.5 miles and look for the fruit stand on the left side of the road just after our orchard. )

***Our ranch fruit stand is open Friday,  Saturday, and Sunday***

NOV. 16, 17, AND 18 IS THE LAST WEEKEND FOR THE RANCH STAND.  APPLES WILL CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE AT THE FARMERS MARKETS.             

Time to stock up!  Remember that apples freeze really well.  Simply  slice and freeze.  Then you  can thaw and use in baked goods,  sauces, or snacking.  A gallon zip lock bag will hold enough for a large apple pie.    Enjoy farm fresh tree-ripened apples all year!  Just make sure they are fresh when you slice and freeze them. 

For more  information about larger quantities of apples, walnuts, or honey  please email us  -   [ or call (530) 409-1254 ]

We are a California certified producer and our apples are also available at Sacramento and Davis Farmer’s markets.  Look for  the  “Patrick’s Mountain Grown”  booth operated by Patrick Hoover.  The prices may be more or less than our ranch stand depending on market conditions.
