Best Los Angeles Apple Picking Locations for Fall  

Los Rios Rancho

Oak Glen, Ca

The apple production on the property has the main goal of meeting the demand for farm fresh produce via U-Pick.  The pick process allows one to connect with the food that sustains them on a daily basis.  It also serves as a great learning tool for how food is grown, handled and received.  Our apples are grown using organic methods though we are not certified organic.  During the fall months Los Rios hosts many school groups that come to see how a working apple farm grows the fruit that has been so iconified.  We offer more than Just Apples,  Our farm also grows Raspberries, Strawberries, Corn, and Pumpkins.  We are open year round in the store and bakery though our fruit production is Seasonal.
