The Philo Apple Farm

18501 Greenwood Rd., Philo, California, 95466, USA

Two founders of the renowned Napa Valley restaurant The French Laundry are among the owners of this farm with three tasteful, inviting cottages and one guest room set in an organic heirloom apple orchard. It all feels very Provençal: the elegant country linens, the floral paintings adorning the walls, the gardens full of herbs and vegetables outside your door. On some weekends the cottages are reserved for people attending the highly respected on-site cooking school here, but midweek a room is nearly always available. The farm stand sells the orchard's apples and pears from late July to Thanksgiving, plus delectable apricot, plum, raspberry, and other jams, including a superb orange marmalade.
