Climbing the “Ladder”

The Central Okanagan is home to many different types of farm operations, including tree fruits (apples, cherries, plums, pears, peaches, and apricots), vegetables (fresh and greenhouse), and cattle ranching.

There’s no question the region’s soil, topography and hot, sunny climate provide an excellent agriculture environment, which is supported by food processing facilities, administration infrastructure and reliable transportation routes. Because we’re all about keeping it fresh.
