"Our association is honored be a part of the Breast Cancer Walk during Orchard Days. We are extremely excited that Mandarin Hill Orchards was chosen as the starting place," said Tom Aguilar, owner of Mandarin Hill Orchards, one of the region's oldest mandarin groves. "It's an excellent way to help our community and also introduce people to one of Placer County's premier crops."
