Gilcrease Orchardis a natures lover’s dream, and best of all is that it is right here in Las Vegas! They have 60 acres of beautiful land where you can pick apples, peaches, pumpkins (starting in late September), and so much more delicious produce.
As if that weren’t enough reason to visit, Gilcrease Orchard currently has gorgeous sunflowers in bloom. You can pick these beauties and live your best cottage core life! Each sunflower costs 2 dollars, and you can also purchase one of three different flower buckets at the Farm Stand that all come with five flowers. The Vintage Scoop Bucket costs $20, The Galvanized Metal Bucket costs $25, and The Farm House White Bucket costs $30. Self-service water is available along the fence, but this is not safe for drinking and is only meant for the flowers. This is a perfect way to transition into the fall and treat yourself to a fabulous handpicked sunflower bouquet to brighten up your home. Oh, do be sure to bring your own scissors and garden gloves to cut the flowers. They are currently open for picking on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, from 7 am-10 am.
Visiting this gorgeous natural gem is completely free of charge, and the magnificent views are alone worth the drive! The dreamy sunflower fields are a definite must-see spot in Vegas and make for a fantastic family-friendly outing. It’s also a perfect spot for a summertime photoshoot! When you’re done collecting your flowers, you can also pick a bounty of produce like tomatoes ($1.50 per lb),
peaches ($2 per lb), zucchini ($1.50 per lb), summer squash ($1.50 per lb), and cucumbers ($1.50 per lb).
No pets are allowed on the farm, but we’re sure they’ll love the sunflowers are much as we do!
