Swanton Berry Farm was founded in 1983 by two dreamers who had previously worked on farmworker owned cooperatives here in Central California. Jim Cochran and Mark Matze both got the farming bug and couldn't resist trying it on their own. 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 couldn't be done.
