U-Pick Season at Trilogy at The Vineyards

Spring has sprung in Brentwood, California, and the team at Trilogy at The Vineyards is thrilled to celebrate the city’s iconic “U-Pick” season. Known as being the Bay Area’s agricultural epicenter, residents anxiously await this time of year to pick their own fruits and vegetables during the area’s harvest and enjoy the rich, home-grown summer produce. A wide variety of fruits are available in Brentwood for picking, including cherries, strawberries, peaches, pears, plums, boysenberries, nectarines, and other fruits, nuts, vegetables, and herbs.

There are more than 40 farms throughout the Brentwood area, which encompasses more than 640 acres of “U-pick” fruits and vegetables, and there is also more than 200 acres of “pre-picked farms” who pick their produce themselves and sell it at the Downtown Brentwood Farmers’ Market and other locations throughout the city.

According to Dan O’Brien, area president of Shea Homes Active Lifestyle Communities, U-Pick attracts people of all ages who want to come out and enjoy the fruits of nature. “You’ll see grandparents out with grandkids, young families taking in the scenery, couples trying something new together and friends enjoying the afternoon. U-Pick is a local phenomenon that has catapulted the city into culinary excellence, and is a cornerstone of Trilogy’s farm-to-table dining philosophy.”

U-Pick Season For Vineyards Residents:

When you live at Trilogy, the epicurean experience is at a higher level. Buying produce from the farm down the road allows Trilogy’s chefs to build menus around fruits and vegetables picked at their prime. “That translates into gourmet meals with freshness you can taste.” said O’Brien. “The best part – our residents have access to the highest quality ingredients every day.”

Throughout the year, residents at The Vineyards can explore their ‘foodie side’ with imaginative and intimate experiential dinners, including Tapas Tuesdays, Sunday Suppers, Grillin’ Thursdays and Campfire Nights. These events allow mingling with the head chef himself as he delicately prepares dish after dish using Brentwood’s finest ingredients.
