U-Pick Pesticide Free Cherries in Brentwood

  • 9

Does any one know where to go to pick pesticide free cherries? I went to Enos Family Farm last year, and they had the most amazing, juicy, delicious organic cherries. Sadly, they have something on their website saying that their cherries are all grown conventionally. I tried searching old posts and on the web, but haven't had any luck.

    1. I just got an email from Bacchini's saying that the sour cherries are late this year, should be ripe in three weeks.

      1. I just went to Pease Ranch to pick cherries and berries yesterday, they currently have at least 2 types that are ready for picking, one is Champagne Corals and the other is lighter in color, I can't remember because I didn't pick those. Some people on Chow called them last year and they said they don't spray, maybe you can call them. (925) 634-4646

        1. Check out Papini Family Orchards in Brentwood. We picked awesome Bing cherries there in 2010. They were either organic or pesticide-free, I can't remember which.

            1. We went to both Pease Ranch and Salvador Family Farms last year and Salvador had our favorite Bings, but they are sold out this year.

              This year, our favorite variety at Pease Ranch were the Utah Giants. We went about 2 weeks ago, so not sure if they still have much. The Rainiers we had there weren't ready when we tried them, so maybe they're at their peak now.

              1. One of my co-workers brought in some nice, ripe cherries she'd picked in Brentwood over the weekend, so if you want to do this, it's time.
