Our personal review: What a blessing to have this kind of business in San Diego! I feel it really helps depict the vibes of Julian’s early pioneer days that we all missed out on in real-life. The owners have done a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the old times with a variety of booths that will satisfy people of all ages. We learned how to make homemade apple cider & candles, throw tomahawks, shoot arrows & slingshots, vegetable gardening & composting. We even partook in a hoedown and hayride! There are many more things to experience as well and the activities change with the seasons.
