Ryan and Gina opened Julian Mining Company with a gold panning trough and tiny pumpkin patch in Oct. of 2007 .Ryan's apple orchard of about 400 trees was planted in 2009 along with some raspberries for u-pick.  Ryan and Gina purchased some raw land across the highway and began a farm where they planted 1500 apple trees, thousands of berry plants and a few acres of pumpkins. Development in San Diego county proved to be very difficult and expensive and after several years of trying to put in bathrooms and barns they decided to shift focus and sell the farm.   Julian Mining Co. still offers U-Pick apples but specializes in gold panning, gem mining and other old fashioned activities for families and school field trips.
