Save the Date: Okanagan Craft Cider Festival

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 1:00 PM by Jennifer Schell

The foundation of the agriculture industry here in Kelowna began on lush orchards offering top quality tree fruits for the community. Cideries have found a way to promote the natural attributes of the Okanagan apple by transforming them into a delicious drink.

We have a love affair with food. More than just a means of feeding our bodies, food is an experience. It brings us together as families, friends and communities. That love affair begins long before a first bite. It begins with anticipation.


Sterling Springs Chicken is owned and operated by Lisa and Hans Dueck based in Falkland BC. Their chicken truck can be found  bi-weekly at the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market currently on Springfield.


The Alcock Family operates their beautiful organic farm in South East Kelowna. Find them at the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market this Fall on Saturdays to buy organic heritage tomatoes and more!

There’s no doubt that summer in Kelowna is coming to an end. The u-pick farms are transitioning from plums and apples to squash and pumpkin, but luckily in Kelowna farm-to-table experiences are still available. So where should you go for farm to table flavours? I have trialed, tested, and definitely approved these three places.

Bartlett Pear

Pear season has begun and I dare say, I have a recipe that might just become your favorite pie of all time. Being raised in an orchard family with wonderful bakers, we have family fruit dessert dishes galore to choose from.
