Tanque Verde Ranch’s annual Prickly Pear Harvest is back with extended weekends running from Thursday, August 16 – Sunday, August 19 and Thursday, August 23 – Sunday, August 26.
Guests do the harvesting, along with enjoying the tastes. You’ll get help harvesting prickly pear fruit and learn how to remove the unusable parts. Once you’re finished, you’ll be able to make margaritas, syrups, and other refreshments. These activities are Friday and Saturday only.
Admission is included with your stay at the ranch, with room rates starting at $435. Otherwise you are welcome to opt for the “a la carte” option in which a guest can pay for just the activities without staying on property. All scheduled activities, except Friday’s prickly pear cocktails activity ($20), are $30 each or $80 for all of Friday’s activities and $60 for Saturday’s.
The ranch alone is a treat with its 60,000 acres of desert landscape, allowing you to travel through the cacti-laden trails of Saguaro National Park.
Tanque Verde Ranch is located at 14301 E. Speedway Blvd. For more information on the dates, call (520) 296-6275 or visit tanqueverderanch.com to reserve your room.
