Anyone know of any organic (or at least no-spray) U-Pick farms that have berries or any other fruit in the Bay Area?

          FWIW, Swanton berries are some of tne best I have ever had. Up the road from Swanton (north) on Highway 1 you can pick Kiwi, although I don't know what one would do with all that Kiwi.

            Phipp's Country Store and Farm in Pescadero has u-pick strawberries, olallieberries and strawberries. They don't use any pesticides. See the website for picking seasons.

              Anyone know any places for u-pick in the North Bay? the ones listed here all sound great but they're either out by Santa Cruz or way beyond Concord torwards Sacramento. I also want organic or chemical-free. Thanks!
