WHAT'S GOING ON
AT CURLEW ORCHARD
The harvest is all put away in cold storage and the focus now is selling. We have pressed and pasteurized plenty of apple juice including mixes with vegetables from Pilgrims Produce, an organic farm in neighbouring Armstrong.
This year we are offering farm-gate sales for the first time from our little red barn on Thursdays and Saturdays till Oct 31st. We are also taking apple and juice orders by email, then put them out for pick up at our little red barn.
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.
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.
