Apple Hill

Every year we go to Apple Hill. It's about 45 minutes away in Placerville. It is always crowded but this year we decided not to go to the popular spots and headed up the hill a little. We found a place called Honey Bear Farm. It was perfect.
The lines weren't very long for pie and the farm itself was beautiful. There was a huge Koy fish pond and old trees and a pumpkin patch. They had made a maze out of hay stacks that the kids loved.
It think next year we will try this place again or maybe even explore some of the smaller farms down some of the little roads.

Apple Hill has lots of memories for me, we've gone every year pretty much since I was a kid. Usually with my dad though what I remember is stopping at road side farms where there were huge bins of apples to pick from and hot apple cider. We would always get a piece of pie or a caramel apple. I'm glad my kids will have lots of happy memories of our Apple Hill trips too.
