My family and I went picking at this orchard last weekend. We had the best time ever! The organic apples were pretty much picked out! No surprise there! (Organics is popular!). We picked two bags of pears to give to our family and friends. The total cost $40! Alot cheaper than Whole foods! And way more FUN!

We are coming for apples and some great get away time every year. Apple-starr is a very frendly and welcoming place. It is definatly organic. I would recomend check your pears and apples for worm holes because they do know which ones are the best. This time we did not find much apples, but picking pears was good.

We really loved picking apples and pears here. The people were friendly and the orchards were beautiful to wander. I recommend going early in the season for the best selection of fruit

This was our first time apple picking in Julian, and Apple Starr didn't disappoint! Make sure you print out a map before driving out here as there is not much GPS signal. There are several other orchards on Julian Orchard Lane, but go all the way to the end for Apple Starr, it's worth it! $25/bag of about 10-12 lbs... More

We have never been out to Julian before but decided to take our kids out there for the day to go pick apples. It turned out to be a wonderful experience and our kids loved it! There isn't much to do out in Julian but this was quite a bit of fun for the family. We drove up from San... More
