Mike's U-pick Cherries

611 Payne Ave, Brentwood, CA 94513, United States


Mikes U Picks was founded in 1985 and sells stone fruit for over thirty years.

From May to every year, the orchards are open only 4-6 weeks a year. They supply you with a picking bin, and you'll take your fruit home with the bag-liner (provided). U-Pick from Mike's is a proud part of 'Brentwood Harvest Time.' Harvest Time offers a free iphone app to help you access the beautiful produce.

Picking cherries is an excellent summer sport. Mikes U Picks uses safety measures to ensure that everyone is safe when they pick cherries. Before the entry, they have lined markings on the floor, masks and glove staff and bags that you can use.
