Volcan Valley Apple Farm 2017 U Pick Season

Kick Off Apple Season


Bring the kids, bring the dog and let’s pick apples!

The Volcan Valley Apple Farm, Julian's largest and best U-Pick apple orchard, announces the opening of the 2017 U-Pick harvest season on Friday, August 25. 

Located at 1284 Julian Orchards Drive, just north of the historic gold mining town of Julian, Volcan Valley Apple Farm covers the local countryside with 7,300 apple trees bursting with seven apple varieties: Gravenstein, Gala, Jonathans, Empire, Fuji, Pippin and Golden Delicious.

This year the apples are bigger, tastier and more plentiful than ever due to the return of heavy winter rain, lots of summer sunshine and plenty of TLC by the VVAF crew, led by Orchard Manager.

Neighborhood: East County

The Navajo Code Talkers

Jul 20 - ongoing

Growing up, young Navajo were told not to speak their language. But as young Marines during World War II, men like Samuel Tsosie Sr. found their words were their mightiest weapons.

The Marine Corps recruited Navajo to Camp Elliott (now part of MCAS-Miramar) to develop a code using the Navajo language for combat communications. Approximately 400 Navajo recruited by the Marines learned the code.  The Navajo were deployed to the Pacific to use their native language to change the course of critical battles including Iwo Jima.

The Navajo code is the only spoken military code that was never deciphered.  The code remained classified until 1968.

The Mike Tsosie Family has generously loaned for display Navajo Code Talker Samuel Tsosie Sr.’s artifacts from his time on the front lines in the Pacific during World War II.
