Comments from a visitor on September 10, 2009: "just a reference to your comments about berries in Arizona. The rim country is literally covered in wild blackberries and I regularly go up every season to harvest to my hearts content. While a little more out of the way, Payson, Pine, Strawberry, and that area up there has lots of creek systems and has blackberries in abundance every single year I've been up there. Likewise, for an easier trek, simply heading up to Sedona into Oak Creek Canyon, you can just park by the side of the road (north of Slide Rock state park) and literally right by the side of the road are acres upon acres of fresh wild blackberries. I typically harvest in the 2nd or 3rd week of August. Likewise, the creek systems near Strawberry has lots of wild strawberries (where the town got it's name) While not a farm, might be worth mentioning."
