Ramona San Diego Movers

Before it was permanently settled, the Ramona area was inhabited by Diegueño semi-nomadic people, who established temporary settlements there as they moved between coastal and inland grounds. Their presence is indicated by archeological evidence such as rock paintings, etchings, and grinding stones used to grind acorns into meal for bread. In 1775 Spanish soldiers came to the Ramona area and attacked a native village (“Pamo”) in retaliation for the destruction of a nearby mission. This is the first recorded interaction between indigenous groups and Europeans in the area.

At one time Ramona was known as the “Turkey Capital of the World.” Turkey production flourished during the 1930s, and the industry was featured with popular annual Turkey Days celebrations. Turkey production went into sharp decline following World War II, and ended completely by 1959. The decline of the turkey industry was followed by rapid growth in the chicken egg business. Egg production, which began in the 1920s, thrived into the 1970s. In 1970, there were about 50 egg ranches in Ramona. Today, most of the chicken ranches are gone. By 2003, only four remained. A notable exception to the decline is the Pine Hills Egg Ranch, which at 1,100,000 birds is the 58th largest nationally, and the 5th largest in the state of California. The demise of the egg industry was, in part, due to population growth and increased land values. It was also caused by an outbreak of deadly exotic Newcastle’s Disease in 1971, which took three years to stem, and another outbreak in late 2002. Dairies used to be common in Ramona, particularly along contiguous Dye Road, Ramona Street and Warnock Road. Today, one dairy remains on Dye Road, and one on Warnock. Notable among current agricultural pursuits in Ramona is rapidly growing wine grape production. The 89,000-acre Ramona Valley American Viticultural Area surrounds the town. An aerial photograph depicting the Ramona Valley Viticultural Area may be viewed at the Ramona Valley Vineyard Association’s website. Although the cost of imported water has been a negative issue in recent years, avocado and citrus orchards are also prominent.
