“Best Apple Cider. Love the Sample Table”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

The best apple cider can be had here! Perfect sweetness to tang on the cider.

I also enjoy the sample table. Some years certain apples are not as crisp and juicy as other years. I prefer to taste before I buy apples. You can also speak to someone knowledgeable about the apples and which variety are for cooking, etc. The person cutting the samples has a wealth of knowledge.

They also have some veggies here.

“great place for shopping fruit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

The store is big and open year around. They keep most of fruit available around and the stock is usually fresh in season. No wax on the apple, pear, and other fruits.
Driving down there is far from cities, but always worth to stop by.
Their wines are ok for table wines. Sweet wines are always welcome to most of people.

“Got my Apples here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

I enjoyed my visit to Boa Vista. They had the second best price I could find for my favorite apples, however, that place ran out, so I got mine here! Wide range of products in their store. Good place to stop. Nice picnic area right across the road.

“Great stop on the Apple Hill trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Boa Vista is always one of our stops on our yearly multi visits to Apple Hill. We have found over the years as this region becomes more known to people that week days are the best time to come up and shop for our apples, jams,fritters and donuts. Boa Vista seems to have the largest selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. Their donuts pastries and Apple pies are really good. They also have a large selection of their own brand of jarred jellies,butters,jams that are very good and obviously are homemade. If you can come up during the week as weekends are very crowded and hard to move around with very long lines waiting for pastries or even to check out.

“Boa Vista Orchards - Placerville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Boa Vista Orchard is a very nice place to visit and shop.. Lots of fresh veggies and jams, jellies, and other assorted canned goods. The wine tasting is very convenient, yet tyhe price is not what i would call a bargain. Too bad you have to pay them ot taste the wine they want to sell..
