Award winning apples

A Kelowna couple have some award winning apples. 

Pearl Beckett and Gary Schierer have been taking care of their orchard farm along Spiers Road for over 15 years producing hundreds of thousands of pounds of apples every season.

Just last month they won the coveted 2019 Golden Apple award.

''We didn't even know that we were being considered for it so it was a very big surprise when, last month at the apple conference, we got brought up and given this award,'' Beckett said.

''We have been flying pretty high ever since then."

The Golden Apple Award is sponsored by the BC Fruit Growers Association – in cooperation with the BC Tree Fruits Cooperative field service – to recognize outstanding orchard management.

''I was convinced by my father back in the 80's to partake in orchards so I have been at it for 35 years. Pearl joined the operation in 1996,''Schierer said.

The couple get to keep the golden apple award on full display until the next winner is crowned in a years time.
