Your Cherry Picking Experience

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’s orcharding tradition spans over 50 years, starting in 1966.

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.

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

What to Bring

If it’s not raining, pack a lunch, bring the family and lots of friends!

We will supply the pails, but feel free to bring your own boxes, containers, and bags. We do sell boxes for 50¢ each.

For the best picking experience bring your hats, sunscreen and appropriate footwear.
