WHAT'S GOING ON
AT CURLEW ORCHARD
The coming harvest is sizing up and taking colour. We are preparing for harvest with a small crew who have been hunkered down on the property threw the last several months. This year we are offering farm-gate sales for the first time from our little red barn starting on Sept 10th. Okanagan Mobile Juicing will join us early in October for a big juicing day and we look forward to partnering with Pilgrim's Produce again on some apple juice/veg blends.
Curlew Orchard grows fruit in balance with nature and became certified organic in 2020.
Six acres of the property are planted with apple trees growing primarily Gala along with Ambrosia, Macintosh, Spartan and Granny Smith. Another acre is devoted to permaculture with a mix of fruit trees, berries, herbs, onions, garlic and diverse companion plants.
The orchard is located on two properties. Gala House is the original orchard house located next door to us on Curlew Road and Spartan House is a classic farmhouse 'with a pool' from the same vintage across the road on Malim. New hot tub at Spartan House starting this fall. Both houses are fully modernized and equipped for your comfort.
This fall we are selling apples and produce directly from the orchard at our 'little red barn' twice weekly from Sept till November. Call ahead if you like and have your order ready for pick up as you drive thru.
Farm-gate sales times are thursdays 2-6pm and saturdays 10am-2pm. Items available at the little red barn on these days will include: multiple apple varieties, discounted baking apples, juice pressed on the farm in Oct, honey from our orchard pollinators, garlic, onions, herbs, cut flowers, and R&M Seed Oils!
With a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) subscription your share will be delivered to a convenient pick up location for 20 weeks/5 months starting at harvest. As a member, you enjoy fresh apples, sample diverse varieties, recieve discounts on apple juice, bulk apples, garlic, onions, even herbs.
Looking for a natural, wide open setting for your wedding or gathering? In 2021 we will begin to welcome guests to reserve our old packing house for events. The 20-acre farm overlooks the hills and lakes of the North Okanagan, borders 50kms of walking trails and is a short drive from downtown Vernon and Silver Star Mtn. Resort.
