  Season 8 - Episode 810
  High Hill Ranch
This week we're celebrating the holidays as we kick off our show at High Hill Ranch in Apple Hill. With a cup of hot apple cider in hand, it's the perfect place to take in the beauty of the fall season.
  Santa's Acres
After you've picked out your tree, you may also want to pick up some holly. Pat found it's a festive, colorful decoration that gets you in the mood for Christmas.
  Willie Bird Turkeys
An article in the Wall Street Journal describes these turkeys as "Best overall. Best value." We'll take you behind the scenes at Willie Bird Turkey in Sonoma County to meet the man behind so many great Thanksgiving feasts.
  Wild Rice
This edible grass used to be a gourmet treat, but now wild rice can be enjoyed by everyone. Nutty in flavor, and full of vitamins and minerals, it makes a great Thanksgiving Day stuffing. Allison follows wild rice from harvest to the dinner table. Fall River Wild Rice Stuffing Recipe.
Peppermint's botanical name is "mentha piperita" and it comes with a long, impressive history. Used by Greek, Roman and Asian physicians to sooth everything from the common cold to an upset stomach. Peppermint Candy Cane Cookies Recipe, Mint Flavored Ice Cream Recipe.
  Foodlink Drivers
The people at California Emergency Foodlink have for years worked tirelessly to feed California's hungry. But we found the people behind this organization offer more than just food; they're giving some a new lease on life. We'll take a look at Foodlink's extraordinary job training program that's getting full-time work to those in need.
  Foodlink Update
During the holiday season families all over California celebrate and give thanks, but another great tradition is collectively coming together to help those who are less fortunate. We pay a new visit to the people at Foodlink and learn some simple ways you can make a difference this year.
  Mother Lode Orchard
Pay a visit to Mother Lode Orchards, one of Apple Hill's lesser-known gems, a place where visitors can pick up everything from apples to pumpkins and Christmas trees. On our trip we learned how to make a delicious butternut squash and roasted garlic bisque. Butternut Squash & Roasted Garlic Bisque Recipe.
