Call Toni with Questions (760) 765-1905 ~ The History Of The Manzanita Ranch Fruit Stand by Lisa Rene Anderson Back in the 1940S, Manzanita Ranch, or what is now called Wynola Farms Marketplace, was originally a roadside stand and packing house for apples and pears grown locally by the Barnes family. The fruit was picked nearby from the orchards of the Manzanita Ranch. Still living at the family ranch, Franklyn "Woody" Barnes recently,spoke about how his family came to Julian and eventually built a business that has supplied us with fruit for nearly a century. Woody's grandfather on his mother's side, Martin Jacobs, was one of 12 children raised in Madison Wisconsin. Martin ran away from home at a young age and travelled the U.S. for 15 years. Woody's grandfather tried his hand at many different jobs including tinkering, tool sharpening, working on a Mississippi river boat and as a page for a senator. Woody notes that back then it was much easier to change occupations then it is today. Martin also worked at various mining camps along the way, ending up in Julian during the gold rush of the late 1880s. He met his wife, Mary, here in Julian. At the time, she was a school teacher in a one room schoolhouse called Oberlin, near Farmer's road. Martin and Mary had 6 children. Martin worked at the Helvitia mine and their children were born there. They also planted a small orchard in what is now the Kentwood area. The family took the excess apples they grew into San Diego on a wagon. Apples were used to barter for items that couldn't be grown or produced on the ranch. Martin then became foreman of the Stonewall Mine and moved his family up to its mining camp. Mary insisted on bringing her piano along, having it laboriously moved up the grade from town. To her great dismay, the piano became warped in a rainstorm and ruined. Later, the couple bought the Robinson Hotel (now the Julian Hotel), convincing Mrs. Robinson to stay in Julian for the first year to teach them the hotel business. Managing a lively business, the family lived and worked at the hotel for more than 50 years. Woody's grandfather on his father's side was Edward Barnes, who first leased the Manzanita Ranch property in the early 1900s. Fruit and nut orchards- were planted and a variety of vegetables and flowers grown. Woody mentions that his mother, Alice, took her first trip to San Diego as a child on a wagon, but she returned in one of the early model cars. By 1916, the family, had purchased the Manzanita Ranch property in Pine Hills. In the beginning, much of the Manzanita Ranch fruit was sold to retail stores. Later the pears were sold to canneries in Los Angeles and Mexicali. Woody's Grandmother, Lulo, designed the labels for the fruit boxes in the Manzanita Ranch farm stand in its heyday the 1960 's, when you could park along the highway. early 1920s. Artistically gifted, Lulo also created items out of copper and wrought iron. By the early 1940s, roadside fruit stands were becoming popular, and the family bought the Manzanita Ranch business property with one small building on it, in Wynola in 1942. In 1946, after the war, they then built the main packing house and sold fruit, clothing and groceries on a small porch. The gas station garage was rented out to a car mechanic. As it turns out, through the years many more pears were sold than apples. However, by the early 1970s the market for pears had collapsed. According to Woody, this was probably due to the rise of centralized grocery market chains which preferred Woody Barnes 'mother, Alice (center), astride a horse pulling a carriage. (Courtesy "Alice Barnes, Gold Mines and Apple Pie'" by Scott Barnes) Woody Barnes with the label for the family fruit business that his Grandmother, Lulo, designed in the 1920 's to buy in bulk from only one source. Because the freight rates had dropped due to cheaper transportation, the markets brought pears and apples in from other areas to sell. Woody points out that at one time Manzanita Ranch grew 35 different kinds of apples. Most likely it was Manzanita Ranch which produced the first apple pies for sale in Julian. To handle the demand, they had to rent out ; the kitchen facilities of the Julian Town Hall and the local Girl Scout Camp. They hired local high school kids to help with retail sales on the weekends. Woody : points out that through the years they employed hundreds of kids and that they never had one bit of problem from them. Today, the Manzanita Ranch retail location is called Wynola Farms Marketplace and is owned byAIbert Lewis. The morketplace is bringing together an exciting new mix of retail businesses including the Samadhi Arts Studio, a fruiteria, gift and antique shops, and wine and hard cider sales. There is a century old oak grove and community garden out back, and even an occasional wedding is held on the premises. Music performances and farm- to-table harvest dinner events are planned to feature local Julian foods and talent. Pretty good for a century old business See: for more info.
