our story

Gael & Joan Barsotti

Freshly pressed juices are our passion!  They're all handcrafted daily in small batches at our family's solar-powered Apple Hill® ranch, surrounded by orchards and pines in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern California.  Our team is committed to pressing only the best fruits and vegetables in creating our tempting variety of juices, lemonades and blends ... each one flash pasteurized with NO preservatives.  Here's to your good health!

IMPORTANT: There has been a fresh juice recall in Apple Hill. IT WAS NOT OUR JUICE. Our juice is pasteurized and unaffected. We are providing our pasteurized, Barsotti-labelled juice to High Hill Ranch so they have a safe, quality apple juice to offer their customers while they continue to investigate the situation.

Local News & Events


apple hill signWe began life as a family-run apple stand some 38 years ago.  One day, our friends at Raley's asked if we could make fresh cider for their fine stores.  "No problem," we said.  So we borrowed a neighbor's cider press and put the kids to work … topping off bottles by hand and delivering ice-covered juice on the back of a rickety old flatbed.  My how things have changed!  Today, our grandkids help craft our extraordinary ciders, juices, and blends right here on our Apple Hill farm for folks all across the country.

We’re proud to be part of your Apple Hill experience, both in the foothills and back home at your local store.
