Welcome to Hidden Star Orchards!
Hidden Star Orchards is an organic, family farm located in the Sierra Nevada foothills just below the town of Jackson. Though originally a dairy farm the land was converted to an apple orchard in 1985. Today 80 acres is cultivated in a variety of fruits which include apples, cherries, blueberries and grapes. In addition to some of the best fresh produce available our varieties are also sold as sun dried fruit. Everything is grown specifically for farmer's markets in the Bay Area.
As an integral part of the apple growing business Hidden Star Orchards has developed a specialty niche in freshly pressed cider. Each week a team of four workers gather up a blend of apples and prepare them for juicing. From start to finish the entire process will run about four hours and fill a 600 gallon tank. After being pressed the cider is flash frozen to preserve the integrity of it's flavor and to extend it's shelf life once it is in your refrigerator. As we hear time and again, "There's nothing like the taste of real apple cider!"
Come help support small family farms and taste some of the best organic fruit in the Bay Area. Stop by one of our markets soon!
