FARM JOB: Kelowna, BC – Pomona Orchard, Farm Hand

Posted by Michalina Hunter on June 03, 2021

Pomona Orchard in Kelowna, BC is seeking a Farm hand!

ABOUT Pomona Orchard

Pomona Orchard is located in Kelowna, the third largest city in the province of British Columbia. This region in the Okanagan Valley is known for its clarity of four seasons, lots of sunshine, and soil rich with organic and mineral contents. The great contrast in temperature between day and night is optimized for sugar formation and accumulation in fruits and thus is the best region for growing fruit trees.

Fruit trees in Pomona Orchard are grown on a slope facing southwest, which gets the most energy from the sun.

Since taking over the orchard in 2017, my husband and I are dedicated to transforming it into an organic orchard. Using only organic certified pesticide and fertilizers. And not using any herbicides on the orchard ground. All our fruits are left to naturally grow into maturity and thus taste juicy, sweet and crispy. The entire orchard is thus full of the fragrant smell of fruits, and is now certified organic.

We are located up the hill from Kelowna Family Y.
