Hidden Star Orchards

Hidden Star Orchards Johann Smit and Wendy Holm welcome you to Hidden Star Orchards. Our family farm is located in the rolling foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains just below the town of Jackson. Once home to a dairy, this beautiful setting completed its transition to an apple orchard in 1985. Everything on our farm is sustainably grown and irrigation is donewith potable, 99.9% pure well water drawn from an aquifer 1000' below the ground. Today 80 acres are cultivated in a variety of fruits which include apples, cherries, blueberries, pomegranates and grapes. Everything is grown specifically for farmers' markets in the Bay Area. Hidden Star Orchards is committed to a zero waste ideal. Fruit that isn't sold at the market is transformed into a variety of value added products. Keeping this in mind, Hidden Star Orchards has developed a specialty niche in freshly pressed cider. Each week a blend of apples are prepared for juicing. From start to finish this process runs about four hours and fills a 300 gallon tank. Once pressed, our cider is flash pasteurized, bottled and then frozen to preserve the integrity of its flavor and to extend its refrigerated shelf life. In addition to apple cider and cider blends, Hidden Star Orchards produces a variety of delicious fruit extracts. These concentrated blasts of flavor add a nutritional punch to yogurt, sauces, smoothies and more.
