This past Saturday was the perfect occasion to go nuts in West Kelowna! Visitors were invited to the Gellatly Heritage Farm for the Annual Fall Harvest Fair. The nut orchard celebrated its 101st birthday this year and is the oldest of its kind in BC!
There was a wide variety of vendors selling delicious fresh fruits, locally grown vegetables and home made pastries, as well as featuring talented artists and craftsmen.
The playground was filled with kids having fun by the lake and enjoying the fresh breeze coming from the south.
And what a great occasion for a family picnic!
Families from all around the country were thrilled to handpick nuts, or peacefully walk through the historical farm.
You can handpick a whole variety of nuts until early November from 9am – 4pm, 7 days a week. All the proceeds from the sales goes towards restoring and maintaining the site, which is also a RDCO Regional Park.
Picture the Okanagan invites you to check out the Spooktacular Halloween Pumpkin Walk at the farm later in October, and look forward to seeing you again next year!
