From the Bay Area, it takes about 1 hour 20 minutes or so to get there. Typically Open hours for farms 9 am - 7 pm but it may vary 2. Bring cash. Some farms only accept cash. 3. Wear multi-layer clothes. In May, noon is quite hot. 4. Bring your own picnic-style lunch or snack. 5. Bring water, drinks. It would be good to bring your own gallon of water to wash your hands after your picking your fruit, and paper towels. Most farms do provide portable bathrooms, hand sanitizer but there is no water available in the fields. 6. Parking is not a problem. Near the fields, there are parking slots although they might be rough and dusty. 7. If you have a small stool or small ladder, it may be helpful when you pick cherries.
