U-Pick weekends at Webb Ranch through July 5


People are invited to pick their own berries at Webb Ranch, located off Alpine Road near Interstate 280, for three weekends starting June 19. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

The weekends are June 19-21, June 26-28 and July 3-5.

The farm is at 2720 Alpine Road. Register at the Webb Ranch farmers' market, about 200 yards east of I-280.

After paying a $3 entrance fee, customers will be able to pick a variety of pesticide- and herbicide-free berries for $3 per pound, according to a Webb Ranch handout. Children under the age of 5 and seniors over the age of 65 will be admitted free.

This year, the farm is selling Butte blackberries, Ollalie blackberries, raspberries, and loganberries. A strawberry U-Pick will be held in late July, according to the handout.

Webb Ranch has picnic tables for U-Pick customers to use.

The farm recommends that visitors wear sunscreen, a hat, and comfortable shoes when picking berries.

For more information, go to the Webb Ranch Web site.

It should be mentioned to drive SLOW. There are people of all ages on horseback and speed can spook horses. I have seen people driving way to fast who are visiting the farm for U-pick. The people who take lessons and board there would be grateful.
