Milpitas has One last working apricot ranch, Silva Apricot Ranch. I haven't been yet, but Milpitas Historical Society is offered a FREE 5 stop tour one day only Sat 7/6/13 11:30 a.m. "Visit the Silva Apricot Ranch, 891 Piedmont Road. This is the last working apricot ranch in Milpitas, where Kelly Silva and his family have cared for this vintage farm for almost 60 years. They will show how their Blenheim apricots are cut, laid out on trays, and taken by rail carts to be dried." And you can buy some apricots after. I hope some hounds can go & report back!
