Farmer's Daughter

Once Bay Area travelers cross the rolling hills of Vasco Road, they’re likely to spot an iconic beacon nestled in the heart of fertile farmland – a place where rich Delta soil produces the most extraordinary fresh fruits and vegetables.

That beacon is a red barn that sits on the northwest corner of Walnut Boulevard and Marsh Creek Road in Brentwood. Complete with a rooster weathervane, white picket fence, lush green lawn, picnic tables, rows upon rows of fruit trees and gorgeous views of Mount Diablo, it is everything you could ever imagine or want a small farm to be.

The Farmer’s Daughter Produce and U-Pick Farm is more than just a red barn with fresh produce – it’s a piece of East County’s agricultural history you can sink your teeth into. And when you do, you’ll be charmed by the likes of Meredith Nunn – owner, farmer and hostess – whose family has been farming in Brentwood for more than 100 years.
