U-Pick Apples - SD County

Hi 'Hounds,

Anyone got some good suggestions for U-pick apple orchards in SD county? I mean to do this every year and always leave it until the last moment...
This year, I've got nothing to do this weekend and a brand-new car GPS so my excuses are limited.
Preference to smaller, organic operations that still have rickety wooden ladders that most would consider a health hazard, but all suggestions all greatly welcomed.

  1. Here's a list of u-pick orchards - they're all out in Julian.

    I would definitely call before driving out there. You just never know if anything's happened the day before.

      A couple weeks ago we went to Star Orchards in Julian. We liked it because there were apples and pears, great variety and it's all organic.
