EverythingBrentwood.com tours the farms to bring them even closer to Brentwood and East Contra Costa County residents and visitors.
Thank you Ken Hagan for hosting us at Bacchini's Fruit Tree, and indulging our numerous questions about farming, cherry picking and the various fruit trees on the farm.
Bacchini's Fruit Tree is located at 2010 Walnut Blvd in Brentwood (Map It) and is one of the favorite U-Pick farms in town. Available for U-Pick from end-May through June are cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, pluots, blackberries, loquats, and nectarines. They also sell freshly picked fruits at their fruit stand during the season.
Memorial Day weekend is the big weekend for Brentwood cherry picking. This is when thousands of local and out-of-town pickers flock to our local farms. The cherry picking season usually lasts through the middle or end of June.
For those who live in Brentwood and the East Contra Costa County area, Ken suggests to come on a Friday before the weekend crowd gets in on Saturday morning. It's less crowded, the fruit trees are picture-perfect, and you get the first pick of the weekend!
Bacchini's Fruit Tree is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. but plan to get there at least an hour before closing time to get in the farm. And it's always a good idea to call in advance to verify the schedule for the day and what fruits are available. They can be reached at 925-634-3645.
There are 40+ farms in the area and we encourage everyone to take advantage of this blessing of living in East Contra Costa County. Get out there and visit a farm and enjoy picking and eating fresh fruits that's grown right in our town!
