Cherry Openings

Get the cherries you want by checking here throughout our season. We will post every variety’s opening right here!

Our 2017 opening date is three (3) weeks behind last year at this time, for a possible early July start date. Please check our calendar toward the end of May for tentative dates.

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.
