Vegas Family Friendly Fun At Gilcrease Orchard Video
Vegas is family friendly with some pretty cool places. One is Gilcrease Orchards. We have been going to Gilcrease Orchards since the twins were 1 years old. I have picked apples most seasons and made easy homemade applesauce (I’ll share that recipe soon). As I shared in the Week In Review we went looking for pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, but there is SO much more to do at Gilcrease Orchards. It’s a Pick-your-own farm in Vegas and a great place to go for some very frugal fun.
Pumpkin Patch – open til the end of October.
Right now over the Halloween Fall time, they have a Pumpkin patch with hay bale maze, apple cider donuts, fresh apple cider and pear cider too. Pick your own pumpkin from the hundreds still attached to the vine. We also picked french radishes, cucumbers, green beans, apples, pears. They have so much more too — see their site gilcreaseorchards.org
It is a few dollars a car to drive in (we paid $3) and the produce seems to be priced mostly at $2 a pound. For fresh of the plant vegetables and fruit makes this a crazy good price.
Fall hours: Open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 am to noon. Saturdays from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and Sundays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
