Each May, we welcome Bay Area families into our orchards for our Annual Cherry U-Picks. We'll provide buckets and a beautiful crop of cherries for you and your family to pick yourselves! The U-Pick season, ranging from early May to mid June, has become a treasured tradition in the Brentwood farming community. We hope you'll come spend a day in the sun, enjoying the natural beauty of a fruitful orchard in spring!
Depending on the weekend, you will be able to pick cherries at one of our THREE G&S Farms U-PICK orchards.
**please check daily for orchard access and hours.
PACKING SHED ORCHARD - 2490 Sellers Avenue, Brentwood, CA 94513 - Closed today - By appointment only Thursday, Friday and Saturday
When can I pick cherries?
Each year the availability and readiness of the crop will determine when we open our U-Picks. Although it is usually safe to come by the middle of May, we always advise calling us first or checking our Facebook page for details. We also open each location depending on the best crop for our guests. Calling or checking Facebook before hand makes sure you come at a good time and head to the correct, open orchard.
We proudly grow many popular varietals of cherries. Depending on their availability and ripeness, a few or all of these varietals will be available when visiting our U-Pick!
If you have a favorite cherry you are hoping to pick, feel free to call us to plan your visit around when they'll be ready!

Like all of you, we have been closely monitoring this virus and trying to figure out what it means for our business.

With regulations changing daily, we are planning to move forward with our u-pick cherry season, with a few precautionary adjustments, like appointment based picking. Our goal is to make sure that we provide our customers and community with a safe and enjoyable season. As things progress, we will continue to provide more information on our u-pick procedures and our ability to welcome visitors.
