Farm to Table

Experience the widest variety of farm fresh food in Canada

The BC Crowsnest Highway 3 corridor provides ample opportunity for farm-to-table experiences. Each area has their own unique offerings. Bite into tree-ripened peaches, devour juicy cherries, taste tomatoes right off the vines, and enjoy a plethora of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables. Add to this locally grown organic beef, chicken, lamb and eggs, the region is ripe with fresh, sustainably grown products. Pick up fresh fruit at a fruit stand, visit casual or fine dining restaurants, or create your own meal from local fresh ingredients and join the foodies who have discovered the bounty of the region. And don’t forget to add local wines, ciders and spirits!

As you smell the freshness of just-picked fruit and veg, you won’t be able to drive through the Similkameen Valley without stopping for farm-fresh food. The Keremeos/Cawston area, known as the Fruit Stand and Organic Capital of Canada, is a must-stop for farm produce. Pick up in-season ingredients for a meal or winery picnic or stop at one of the many casual and field-to-fork restaurants in the Village, and at wineries and cideries, to experience the local vibe along with creative local fare.

Osoyoos has everything from street-side cafés to vineyard-view bistros — from casual to upscale dining experiences, sure to please foodies everywhere. Our chefs and restaurateurs are passionate about promoting what Osoyoos has always been known for — the traditional pleasures of using food grown locally and raised sustainably and prepared with seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Good things grow in Boundary Country. The lush farmland can yield bumper crops of fruit and root vegetables. Gather the clan, or your foodie friends and tour the whole valley. Stop along the way at family-owned farms, orchards, and roadside markets. Shop our seasonal farmer’s markets and discover what’s fresh in the valley! Take your quest to discover where your food comes from one step further and go right to the source. Your first stop — Jerseyland Organics outside of Grand Forks to learn how cheese and yogurt are made, the organic way.
