The climate in the Creston Valley is the key factor in growing the perfect cherry. With cool but mild winters, medium to hot summers and the right mix of moisture, soil and drainage, cherries from B.C. are the best cherries in the world. On 15.5 acres of fertile orchard lands 4.5 acres are currently planted to late season Sweetheart and Staccato cherries with an annual harvest of about 70 – 80,000 Lbs. The gently sloping south aspect also has the perfect conditions for a vineyard as there are two award winning wineries located in the immediate vicinity. The property has spectacular views of the valley, south towards the USA (Idaho) east to the Purcell Mountain Range and west to the Selkirk Mountain range. There is a 2,400 sq ft three bedroom family home on site as well as a 5,122 sq ft permasteel packing house that was built in 2006 which can process up to 25,000 lbs of fruit per day.
