I love eating good apple pies and also enjoy making them.
My favorites are:
Mom's Apple Pie on the way to Sebastapol from Santa Rosa. Gravenstein apples which are my favorite. Haven't been up there for a while so I'm not sure they are still there.
Gizdich Farms near Freedom, east of Watsonville. Apple pies seasonally.
Ikeda near Auburn on the highway to Tahoe. They have great pies all year round.
Machado, across the highway and a bit east of Ikeda. Apple pie somewhat seasonally.
Can anyone suggest other favorites???
