Seeking farm fresh getaways? Sacramento is the gateway. Less than 50 miles in any direction, farm trails are calling. Farm Trails offer summer tours, festivals, music, flowers, and baskets brimming with edible delights. Daytrips or overnight, regional farms welcome you with open arms.
More than 100 farms, wineries, and ranches are close enough to taste at El Dorado County Farm Trails and Apple Hill. The California Gold Country and Sierra Nevada foothills provide a scenic backdrop for succulent u-pick berries. At American River Cherry Company or Berry Heaven USA, strap on your buckets and get to picking cherries, raspberries, blackberries and olallieberries. Year-round, Hooverville Orchards Bakeshop sells jams, jellies, and pies and farm fruit; picnic with the peacocks and pheasants.
At summer’s end, Apple Hill celebrates the official season Labor Day weekend. U-can pick here, too!
