Best apples, and other seasonal fruits. Great ciders. Not to mention the bakery. Yummy! Doughnuts are to die for... All kinds of turnovers and beautiful pies. A must visit place!

Pride in the Family owned and run operation makes this place something special. Everything is so tasty. Treat yourself! We do every chance we get. Prices are so reasonable. Fresh fruit, veggies and homemade jams, mustards and syrups are great extras at this superb bakery.

We've now tried not only the apple pie, but the mixed berry and the peach. They are all excellent but our favorite is definitely the mixed berry. You won't be disappointed with their other treats as well. Even their BBQ sandwiches are a good addition. Love finding local places like this! Give them a try.

For decades I have been going to the Red Apple for my apple spice donut fix. I always bring home apple crisps, donuts, fritters, and pies after my camping trips to family, friends, and co-workers in the Bay Area and San Diego. This last trip, we went up mid week to find no donuts in the afternoon but took a... More

Don't even think of passing by the Red Apple Bakery and Fruit Stand without stopping. The heavenly scent of fresh baked pies and tarts is the first thing you'll notice when you get out of the car. You can buy pastries and consume them at the outdoor picnic tables, or take with you to enjoy when you get to your... More

We always stop at this place on our way back to the bay area from Arnold. The pastries are awesome and my only regret is when they are sold out (or between batches) of the apple turnovers. We always get the cider and turnovers, but have also tried the apple dumplings and pies happily. They also have fresh apples and... More

On our way back from the Big Tree State Park, we stopped by for some hot cider. It was rainjng, but we did not care. We sat in the car, drinking our hog cider and eating apple donuts. Great place to stop and smell the apples.
