ALBANY, Calif. (AP) -- UC Berkeley police are barricading the site of an anti-development protest on university-owned property where protesters have planted an urban farm.

The protest, known as Occupy the Farm, began nearly two weeks ago, but school officials set a deadline last weekend for demonstrators to vacate the property.

UC spokesman Dan Mogulof says officers arrived at the 10-acre plot in Albany Wednesday morning and placed two concrete barricades to prevent any vehicles from going into the farm. People are being allowed to go to and from the site, which is normally used for university research.

Mogulof says no arrests have been made, and no protesters have been removed.

Protesters have said they would only leave if UC Berkeley gives them continued access to their urban farm.
