Top 6 U-Pick Farms near Stockton, California

Visit Stockton

We have an abundance of u-pick farms in the Stockton area and berry season (May - September) is a great time of year to visit them. Here are a few of our favorites!

They say the best produce comes when you pick it yourself and our taste buds would have to agree! Embrace the warm California weather while you and your family enjoy an afternoon at a local farm. Plus, the kids might be more open to eating their fruits and vegetables they picked themselves, and in San Joaquin County, there is no shortage of u-pick farms to choose from! Just be prepared to wear a hat, some sunscreen, comfortable shoes and pants. Here are a few of the best u-pick farms in the area:
