Gilcrease Orchard Las Vegas?

janetofreno | May 26, 2008 10:15 PM

I actually live less than a mile from this orchard, billed as the only U pick orchard in Las Vegas, and actually the only orchard period. So I have been anxiously awaiting its opening. Everything I read indicated May, but May is almost gone and there is no sign of fact, it looks a little untended, to be honest. I know the weather has been unseasonably cool (well, except for two days last week), but when I drive by I see fruit on trees (not sure what type of fruit...can't get close enough to tell). The website says "watch for Spring 2008 opening."

Anybody know the scoop? Are they opening this year? Did I move within a mile of a Upick orchard only to have it go out of business?? (I can see that happening with the higher gas prices and the number of vacant homes around here....)

Gilcrease Orchard is at the corner of Farm and Whispering Sands roads in the northwest Vegas suburbs.....
