French lavender, fresh, locally sourced and organic fruits and vegetables, reveal the earthy abundance of summer along the El Dorado County Farm Trails.
Wine grapes, pumpkins, olives and seasonal produce from local growers take center stage through fall, as the recreational festivities and aromas of cider, BBQ, pastries and pies from Apple Hill beckon locals and visitors back from near and afar.
