We are hoping to be open for you-pick cherries on Friday, July 15th. Spring weather conditions caused a two weeks delay and a very light crop.

Season Opening Mid-July 2022

Fruit Picking Season Information 


  • We expect season opening to be 14 days later this year due to colder weather. We hope to be open Friday, July 15th for you-pick cherries.

  • When fruit is available we are open Monday to Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Closed Sunday's.



  • We have an orchard entrance fee of $3.00 per person over 10 years old which covers sampling the fruit while picking. (The fruit price per pound has not been determined yet.)



  • We do not require reservations and our hours are Monday to Saturday 10:00 am to 2:00pm while fruit is available.

  • Our selling season is shorter than other orchards because the majority of our orchard is a replant and needs a few years before producing.

  • If you are planning on visiting please check if we are open first.


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 suggest wearing good footwear in the orchard and bring hydration. We will have bottled water for sale if needed.


  • 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. 


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