We're looking for organic or pesticide-free farms in the Bay Area where we can pick our own tomatoes, preferrably roma or other good sauce variety...roma is our favorite. We're heading to Brentwood tomorrow to scout around, and have visited the www.pickyourown.org website for possible leads. Anyhoo...it's not clear who's got good tomatoes ready to pick. We're in San Rafael, so prefer places north or east....but I'll drive 100 miles for top quality ripe produce. ;)
We might also be interested in a good wholesaler of same.
We're looking for approx 100 lbs.....we pulp, cook-down and freeze 'em.
Thanks for the quick response. We've got a few roma plants that we just started harvesting this week, so thought they might be a bit ahead in the valley. We'll proceed to Brentwood anyway just to get the lay of the land and hopefully scarf down some juicy tree-ripe peaches!
That's the problem when you've grown your own fruit and veggies for years, as we've done...the storebought stuff all tastes like cardboard.
I'm also looking for a source of raw, unprocessed tree-ripe black olives. Hope to process 25-50 qts this year.
