Organic Strawberries Plus Other Seasonal Organic Fruits And Vegetables.
Swanton Berry Farm was founded in 1983 by two dreamers who had previously worked on farmworker-owned cooperatives in Central California. They rented 4 acres of land, bought an old tractor, and planted four acres of strawberries. At that time no one had grown strawberries organically on a commercially successful basis, and everyone in the industry said it couldnÕt be done. In 1987, the farm was certified by California Certified Organic Farmers, becoming the first organic strawberry farm in California. Someday they hope to purchase some land of their own, but for now, they are renting four beautiful ranches strung along Highway One, north of Santa Cruz, California.
