Nature's Country Corner / Manteca - stop for the fruit and pie!

First tip about this /Produce Stand came from someone in Oakdale at the H-B Saloon where we had great juicy ripe tomatoes with lunch. He said that they got their tomatoes from the Stand on 120 and Jack Tone Rd. It's still a bit early for the best tomatoes but we got some amazing nectarines ( about $1.49 a pound ) and bought a boysenberry pie for $11.50. The pie had good berry flavor and a nice flaky crust - considering the price, a good deal. There are countless stands along the road ......any other good ones out there?
Restrooms and some picnic tables IIRC.

    What a great place! Stopped there while visiting the family at Thanksgiving. Dried fruit and nuts are also delicious. But the pies...sigh. Wish I could mail order them.

      Isn't this place great? Posted briefly about it last fall. Couldn't resist a boysebberry pie and some great fresh almonds and pistachios.

      I also like the Phillips Family Farmstand just east off 5 near Lodi (Highway 12) great pies and a wonderful garden to wander/strech legs in.

      Gizdich Farms on Watsonville's east side not far from Highway 1 is a great spot too. They have apples, boysenberries and raspberries. Pie stand and fruit for sales. very family friendly.
