Fort Cross is a family farm, with hands-on outdoor education for all ages! Originally centered around living history, we now also offer programs and private events that involve music, art, survival skills, team building, and agriculture workshops.
Not just for kids! Events for all ages welcome!
We are located in the Julian area, nestled in the beautiful mountains of
San Diego County.
