Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!

From their website:
"We are a community of growers of organic, pesticide-free avocados, grapefruit, persimmons, nuts, and other produce. Here in a quiet valley located away from the hustle-and-bustle of the big cities, Morning Star Ranch can focus on the more important things of life: how to cultivate human relationships and get to know our Creator, which is the key to living sustainably on our farm, and on this planet.You are invited to come visit any time. We only ask that if possible you let us know ahead of time so that we can be ready for you. Bring yourself, bring a friend, or bring your family. We look forward to seeing you."
Personal Experience: This area is one of my favorite places in San Diego county to visit. The drive through Valley Center is breathtakingly beautiful and once you arrive, you are welcomed with a lavender field (which is open for public visiting), fruit trees, farm animals and extremely friendly owners. They recently opened two deli's called the Yellow Deli. One is in Vista and the other is right at the entrance to their land. All of the food is grown by them, and boy is it fresh and delicious!
The people here are said to be part of a cult and part of what I like to do is humanize them a little. Some of the other rumored cults in San Diego are at Unarius in El Cajon, Questhaven Retreat and Harmony Grove Spiritualist Center in Escondido and Lemurian Fellowship in Ramona. I get very peaceful vibes when I visit Morning Star Ranch and their deli's. I know the are rumors about other branches of their and child beatings but I have not heard any from the one we have here in Valley Center.
