U-Pick Orchards at Borello Farms is a massive orchard of cherry trees where you can walk rows upon rows of trees and pick your own ripe, huge, delicious cherries.
With locations in Gilroy and Morgan Hill, there are plenty of cherries for everyone!
The orchard is open for picking 1-2 weekends in late May or early June. It's a short season, so make sure you get out there and pick while you can! Or* be sure to mark your calendars for the following year so you don't miss it.
The Gilroy location is a smaller farm and they tend to sell out first, so be sure to check their Facebook for updates before you head out**
We went to Ranch #5, located at 550 Monterey Road, Morgan Hill, CA. Though it was busy, there was plenty of space and tons of fruit to be picked. It didn't feel like you were competing with others because there was plenty to choose from.
The first ranch we went to was full but we were able to drive a mile ahead to the next ranch which then took about 10 minutes to get a parking spot. It was Memorial Day Weekend, so lots of people were out.
We paid $5 per pound for the biggest, sweetest cherries I've ever seen.
AND THAT'S A WRAP!
