You’re invited to an outdoor Land Social and Farm Tour at Similkameen Nurseries in Keremeos, B.C.! If you’re curious about what land matching and sharing is all about – or just want to check out what your local farmers are up to – join us for the event.
Come learn from farmers Josh Brown, Erik Knechtel, David Lemieux, and Dejan Nad of Similkameen Nurseries Ltd., an organic nursery business specializing in fruit trees. They are an operation on approx 20 acres of leased land. Established in 2015 in Cawston, BC, the business has grown to be one of the largest in the province, supplying orchardists, cideries, garden centres and backyard gardeners, with around 150 varieties of orchard fruit on their choice of many different rootstocks. They are currently producing about 70,000 units per year and have created this farm by developing an intimate network of land and equipment owners, as well as their progressive approach of empowering farm owner-operators. This is a dynamic, mutli-location farm tour, sure to inspire!
