Strawberry picking in Thalwil

Hi All,

Having recently moved to Thalwil from Canton Aargau, I'm hoping to find some farmer's fields where you can go strawberry picking. Failing that are there any farms in or around Thalwil, where you can buy fruit (cherries, strawberries etc).

Many thanks,
Ebony

Re: Strawberry picking in Thalwil

I dont know about Thalwil but I have seen a strawberry picking field in Wettingen Aargau. It is near the highway in the Zurich direction so if you are coming from Thalwil I think you will just get off the highway and turn right into wettingen. You cant miss it. There is a big blown up strawberry man on the left.

I don't expect this page will show all of them by any means, but you might find one near enough to be useful.

Re: Strawberry picking in Thalwil

Just found this one of the Bockengut in Horgen, which is not far from Thalwil. In Wädenswil there is also a 'Farm Shop' (Rellstab I think) on the Speerstrasse. I don't think you can pick fruit yourself there though.
And this Site was on an Ad on Swiss TV! Again, it is by no means complete, but we'll get there in the end.
Googling 'Direkt ab Hof Gemüse' (straight from the farm, vergetables) gives a few more places but this one south of Berne is the only link I can find to pick the fruit yourself.
