WHAT'S GOING ON
AT CURLEW ORCHARD
Count down to 2021 harvest, its time to line up a team and prepare for picking in early September this year. Pressing juice will be in late September. Once again we will partner with Pilgrim's Produce in Armstrong to blend some organic veggies with our apple juice.
Curlew Orchard grows fruit in balance with nature and became certified organic with BCARA in 2020.
Six acres of the property are planted with high density apple trees growing primarily Gala along with Ambrosia, Macintosh, Spartan, Granny Smith, Salish and Honeycrisp. Another acre is devoted to permaculture with a mix of low density fruit trees, berries, herbs, onions, garlic and diverse companion plants.
We have lots of herbs! (sage, thyme, mint, fennel, horse radish, dill, chives and more)
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 in 2020. Both houses are fully modernized and equipped for your comfort.
Farm stand will be open on thursdays from noon till 6pm, corner of Malim and Curlew Rds. 2021 Harvest available in September. If you can't make it on thursdays, this year you can email us your order for apples and/or juice and we will put it out for you to pick up from our red barn mon to friday.
Minimum apple order of 11kg/25lb flat. We'll let you know the amount by email and an e-transfer will confirm the order.
Pick ups on weekdays from noon to 6pm, till late february 2022.
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.
