The Apple Farm began in June of 1977 with the purchase of Sam's Restaurant, a floundering pancake house on San Luis Obispo's motel row. Six months later, in January of 1978, the first in a series of ten additions began that have tripled the size of the original restaurant building and have completely changed both the interior and the exterior look of the Apple Farm. Later, in December of 1988, the Millhouse was opened to the public. With its 6,000-lb. white oak water wheel and antique machinery, the mill is able to run a gristmill. The bearings and cast iron hubs for the wheel are over 100 years old and were originally used in an old mill on the East Coast. In the fall of 1988, the adjacent Franciscan Motel was purchased and "Apple Farm-ized" to become the Apple Farm Trellis Court. The Trellis Court opened in July of 1989. The Apple Farm was purchased by another local pair in August 2000 and has continued to grow and find new ways to provide better services.
