Named after the endangered Long-Billed Curlew that once roamed these hillsides, Curlew Orchard is dedicated to growing delicious fruit in balance with nature.
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, veg and diverse companion plants. We have completed our third year of transitioning the orchard and will be certified organic in 2020.
OVERLOOKING THE NORTH OKANAGAN
Come and enjoy the beauty of this location. From the orchard look out over Vernon, the Okanagan hillsides and lakes tucked between. Steps from Grey Canal trail along BX creek to waterfall and close to downtown Vernon Silver Star Resort. Quiet and natural yet close to everything.

PATRICK & SEAN
Patrick grew up in Vernon and moved back in 2015 from Toronto with Sean and their kids. We're here for our families and friends, skiing above the clouds and swimming in gorgeous warm lakes. We practice regenerative agriculture with a permaculture approach in part of the orchard and are now completing our third year of transitioning to organic status.
