Mother Lode Orchards

4341 North Canyon Road
Camino, CA 95709


Mother Lode Orchards is an original Apple Hill® Ranch. It was the passion of Dick Bethell who devoted himself to these orchards and the wonderful fruit they produced. Dick has passed on, but his passion is carried on by the Hernandez family and the Bethell-Uriu partnership. We’re opening our doors for the 2012 season on September 3rd through December 15th.

We’re proud of the fresh, flavorful fruit grown here at the ranch. In addition to apples you can pick up varietal cider and vegetables.

We’re happy to announce that the Hernandez family will be managing the ranch marketing for us this year. Spanish and English are both spoken. Please come visit and experience the quality Mother Lode Orchards has to offer.
