Driving back over the Sierra from a visit to California in October, I stopped at a seasonal favorite. Machado Orchards is right off I-80, at (you guessed it) the Bowman Exit east of Auburn. They usually have a white blimp tethered advertising their fruit. I love the Aeromotor windmill. And the giant tree in their parking lot.
Better yet, the fruit is grown right here. Acres and acres of fruit trees surround the shop, so you know things are fresh. And I think it's important to support the small grower. Nothing against Ikeda's just a hop and skip closer to Auburn where lots of folks stop, but I love knowing my apples came right from this very orchard!
Check out this seriously cute graphic on the box.
