Your Cherry Picking Experience

Welcome to Kempf Orchards!

Welcome to Kempf Orchards!

Your summer visit to the Okanagan is complete when you’ve had a chance to pick your very own cherries.

The Kempf family orcharding tradition spans over 50 years and the moment you set foot in the orchard, you will feel the love.

Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and check out our Cherry calendar in June to keep up to date on the openings for every single delicious cherry variety.

Get Ready for Our 2017 Season

Thank you everyone for making this a family friendly U-pick cherry farm. We look forward to welcoming new and repeat guests looking for our fine fresh fruit.

Check out our cherry calendar toward the end of June as we will confirm the tentative dates when we feel the cherries will be ready. When you see “Confirmed” on the calendar, we will be ready for you! If you miss one variety though, don’t worry, as there are many varieties that will be ripening from June through August.

Our Many Varieties!

We have 9 different varieties of cherries! Because they ripen at various times through our July and early August season, we will not have them all posted on our Cherry Calendar until we know approximately when they will ripen. We ask you to frequently check our Cherry Calendar and when you see a confirmed date for the variety you are interested in, bring as many friends as you can and pick them before they sell out!

Here is our list:

  • Early Yellow
  • Cristalina
  • Stella
  • Satin
  • Rainier
  • Stardust
