Apricot Picking Season Information

Prices 

 

  • Before Picking- We have an orchard entrance fee of $3.00 per person over 10 years old which covers sampling the fruit while picking.

What to Bring

 

  • We provide pails for picking as well as bags. You are welcome to bring whatever you like in addition to this. Our orchard also uses ladder for full size trees. 

 

  • We provide bags for free and sell boxes if needed.

 

  • We suggest wearing good footwear in the orchard and bring hydration.

 

  • We have a great location for views of the lake and walking in the orchard and fields, bring a camera. We can also take pictures of your group with a panoramic view of Okanagan Lake in the background. 

 

Apricot Picking Guidelines

 

  • Do not climb tree's or pull down branches as they break easily. (climbing an older tree is extremely dangerous)

 

  • Do not pick any fruit that is not in season or areas that are marked off as they aren't ready for picking yet.

 

  • Use ladders at own risk.

 

  • No smoking in orchard, we have a fire pit and chairs with a beautiful lake view where one can smoke.

 

  • Respect for the farm and orchard is greatly appreciated.

 

We look forward to hosting your fruit picking experience should you visit us this year.
