2015 Cherry Season in Brentwood 

 

May 25th, 2015 Update

I’m sad to report, the Brentwood U-Pick Cherry Season has come to an end and most farmers are reporting that their cherries are fully picked for the 2015 season. You’ll be able to find picked cherries at some farms, but the U-Pick Season has pretty much ended. I hope you had an opportunity to enjoy this season with your families. Remember to check back at the Certifiable Foodie next May for Cherry Season Updates.

I’m excited to announce the beginning of the 2015 Cherry Season in Brentwood. I’ve received updates from Brentwood Cherry Farmers that they’ll open on Tuesday, May 5th through Saturday, May 9th. The 2015 Brentwood cherry season will commence around Tuesday, May 5th at some farms and continue until the trees are picked clean. The cherry crop will be great this year, despite the severe drought threatening many of our California agricultural crops.  

I suggest you plan your trip to Brentwood promptly and take the family to pick a few pounds of the best cherries in the Bay Area. Some farms are open seven days a week especially during cherry season, the farmers suggest you make your trip mid-week to avoid too much congestion in the area.  Call the farms ahead of time for days and hours of operation. Remember, Brentwood is a small farming community; with minimal parking, so plan accordingly by carpooling with family and friends.

If Mother Nature cooperates, Brentwood Farmers expect cherries will be in supply for u-pick through the second week in June. Brentwood is located about an hour east of San Francisco over the Bay Bridge and through the Caldecott Tunnel or up route 580 East. You can access up to date crop, farms and picking information at the Harvest Time in Brentwood website and their app available on iTunes. The price per pound is approximately $4.00 to $4.50 this year for u-pick. I’ve also written a primer on U-Pick Etiquette on behalf of our farmers, please read it before you make your visit. Support and respect our hard working local farmers and their farms so that we can continue to share in this incredible experience of harvesting our own fresh produce.
