Johann Smit and Wendy Holm are the owners of Hidden Star OrchardsÊTheir family farm is located in the rolling foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains just below the town of Jackson. Previously home to a dairy farm, this beautiful setting completed its transition to an apple orchard in 1985. Their organic certification was granted in 2005. Today 80 acres are cultivated in a variety of fruits which include their original apples along with cherries, blueberries, pomegranates and grapes. Committed to a ‘zero waste’ ideal. What they don’t sell as fresh produce is converted to fresh-pressed ciders, fruit extracts, apple sauce, apple chips, apple butter and fruit preserves.
