Brentwood, an hour’s drive East of San Francisco, is one of several towns located on the morning side of Mt. Diablo just below scenic rolling hills in the Central Valley . This area is a viable agricultural area, due to its unique micro climate, amidst new affordable homes and major shopping areas. Known nationally for its Brentwood Sweet Corn, the area is also well-known for its Harvest Time farm trail with over 30 farms and ranches offering the visitor a unique U-Pick experience of apricots, peaches, pears, nectarines, cherries and other equally delicious and fresh fruits, vegetables and agricultural products. A revitalized and picturesque Old Downtown offers lots of quaint boutiques and dining opportunities. Brentwood is also home to the annual family-friendly Cornfest each July after Independence Day, celebrating the corn harvest and offers product and food vendors from all over the state. A farm trail map is produced annually by the Non-Profit group Harvest Time to direct you to the farms.
