Swanton Organic Berry Farm

Posted by on Apr 14, 2011 in Blog | No Comments

Farm #7 was the Swanton Organic Berry Farm located in Davenport, CA.

The Swanton Berry Farm was founded in 1983 and has been 100% organic and 100% union labor since its start. They specialize in, you guessed it, berries however they also grow kiwis, artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkins, peas, brussels sprouts, and celery. You can purchase some of their items online here.

At the farm stand you can buy a variety of jams, jellies, pies, cobblers, etc and it also has a museum-y feel. There’s historic & nature displays, vintage table games, and music. You can take a self-guided tour of the farm or help pick berries in season.

The 200 acre farm is spread over 5 locations. They are truly committed to bringing the best tasting vegetables and berries on the plant [their words, not mine] to every customer. It’s a warm and wonderful place…..and Davenport is AMAZING. The ocean is across the street and beautiful.
