Back again this year for U-PICK CHERRIES!
We are excited to announce that we will offer U-Pick cherries this year. Our Grand Opening Day will be Saturday, June 10, 2023!
Delicious Lapin Cherries! The Lapin cherry variety arrives later than most cherries. Known for its dark color, the Lapin cherries are a perfect balance between sweetness and tartness, large, plump, juicy, and crunchy. Due to its late arrival, this unique cherry variety is not often found in grocery stores.
OPEN: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Long Shadow Farm
The Long Shadow Farm is a 170 acre irrigated ranch in Byron California. Purchased by Jim and Tori Lawrence in 2013, this is the closest irrigated ranch to the East Bay and is endowed with deep, well drained clay soil capable of growing a variety of crops. Water comes from the California Delta by canal.
The Brentwood/Byron farming area is a small, charming agricultural community growing a large variety of fruits, vegetables, tree crops, and wine grapes. Brentwood sweet corn is sought after by people all over California; the Brentwood microclimate produces some of the sweetest corn in California. Now known as the U-pick Capital of the world, the U-Pick cherry crop from farmers of Harvest Time in Brentwood is much desired by Bay Area residents. Welcoming families and cherry enthusiasts annually, the Brentwood cherry picking experience brings in thousands of visitors each year.
What makes this area unique is how farmland is preserved within a suburban environment, surrounded by people and houses yet commercially very productive.
On a typical year Long Shadow Farm grows walnuts, sweet cherries, sweet corn, hay and tomatoes.
U-Pick Cherries will be available in late May. We also offer Oat Hay and walnuts for sale.
