If you want to go to a U-pick farm in East Contra Costa County and don't know where to go, there is plenty of information available on websites and social media.

Harvest Time, a nonprofit that promotes agriculture in the Brentwood area, has a website at www.harvest4you.com, where you can find U-pick information. At Harvest Time's site, you can also download its new map app, which will be available on all platforms, starting next week.

On Facebook, you can find out more about U-pick at the Harvest Time Facebook page at Facebook.com/HarvestTimeFarms. The Brentwood Cherries Facebook page can is at Facebook.com/BrentwoodCherries. Many of the individual farms also have their own Facebook pages.
