  • Wow,lots of nice cherries! Once everything was explained,understood why all the "rules" (and no, there weren't 10). Find some of the comments silly,found the staff very helpful,answered all questions. Maybe don't go if you have no patience/respect and don't care about quality or having a fun experience. If all you want are cheap cherries,by all means head to Costco/supermarket and support commercial growers from US etc. I hear it is lovely down the aisles this time of year.Will definitely be back!
  • I was there from Vancouver for 4 hrs of driving one way, but I just came back without anything First of all, very expensive... $3.59 and $4.59 per LB. This is much more than buying at Safeway nearby home. No eating while picking because of sprayed..this is not even funny. This is main merit for U picking experience. Minimum purchasing of 5 LB and some other restrictions. There is not even one reason for u picking. I won't be there any more at least this place. This is not negative feedback, just for information. Cheers
  • I enjoyed picking the cherries here, I had never been before so it was a neat experience. I'm sure the restrictions are there for a reason and put in place because of people being disrespectful to their livelihood. I would much rather pay the $3.50/lb and know it is local to me than $3.50/lb knowing it comes from another country. It didn't take us long to get to 5 lbs so don't plan on spending all day here.
  • Great family run business.Their history of orcharding shows in the quality of their fruit. Amazing cherries , friendly people. I come every year from Calgary to pick red and yellow cherries. Highly recommend you stop by next time your in town!!
  • Best cherries in the Okanagan. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Come here every year. The prices are fair in competition, for quality cherries! Support local instead of cherries from other countries... will be continuing to support the Kempf orchard! Thank you!!
