Agri-tourism is a big part of Julian's heritage and we have many farms in the backcountry growing a variety of crops. Some of these crops include; apples, pears, peaches hops, grapes, berries, cannabis and much more.
Our apple orchards are the most popular and we have a few orchards that offer seasonal apple picking and farm tours. This happens right around September when the orchard are in bloom and we feature our Apple Days season. You can pick apples and learn about the different varieties that grow here and typical growing procedures. You can enjoy some soft or hard cider as well as delicious Julian pie.
We also have farm to table options and a wide range of local culinary and libation experiences. We have a few local wineries, breweries and cideries that would take a whole day to experience on its own. Our culinary and libation scene are a major attraction in San Diego's backcountry and a lot of the reason people come up to visit.
We are a rich agri-tourism destination that with many other attractions and activities to choose from.
