Can anybody recommend some local area producers or u-pick locations for fruit.  We are looking to make the following and need some organic sources of 1st and 2nd quality fruit.  Bulk deals always a plus and we are looking at 100lbs+ of each type.  Maybe a big canning party in the near future? 

Thanks.

Jason

Local fruit

I've been driving around the Grass Valley area and have been noticing fruit trees along roads and creeks just loaded with fruit. So far I've seen plums, apples, pears and quince. You would have to wade through brush, blackberries and poison oak to get to the trees.  I'm sure the property owners would let someone go pick the fruit if asked.
