Best Roadside Cornfield Stand 

Mangini's

The corn is as high as an elephant's eye and the windmill looks like it's reaching way up the sky near the rudimentary green stand with an old tractor out front. It's one of the few remaining pieces of undeveloped land in the area. Roll along on Pleasant Hill Road, a bit south of Taylor Boulevard and there's the field of corn that has been growing for you since spring. August is the hot month for being corny. Park near the stand. Stand and wonder at how green the corn is as the sunlight plays on it. Appreciate the importance of the red wheels on the tractor. Walk in to select corn picked that morning from the cornfield right there. Shuck an ear or two and take in the freshness. It also sells melons, squash, beans and stone fruit. Signs announce "Fresh white corn," and "Fresh Brentwood cherries." As Halloween approaches it's a punkin' patch.
