Keremeos, nestled in the picturesque Similkameen Valley of British Columbia, thrives as a dynamic hub for agriculture. Renowned for its top-notch fruits and vegetables, this area isn’t limited to just that—housing a sizable cattle ranching community, including the prestigious Hereford Bull Development Station. The Valley also showcases a vibrant horse scene, hosting breeds like Quarter Horses, Arabians, Appaloosas, and Paints, among others.
The distinctive soil, pristine mountain water, and arid climate of the Similkameen Valley synergistically contribute to the prosperity of these diverse agricultural pursuits. Notably, the Valley proudly hosts one of B.C.’s initial “Certified Organic” organizations alongside traditional growers. Their bounty is readily available at the farm gate and through numerous local fruit stands.
