I've heard that goats will eat blackberry - can't get much more biological 
(but not necessarily friendly) than that! Here in Australia a 'rust' has been
released which is supposed to target and destroy only blackberries. This was
recently 'released' before testing had been completed. Obviously it came
from somewhere - perhaps check your local agriculture department? Good luck!
