Farms & Markets
As the origin of everyday food becomes increasingly significant in today's culture, Creston Valley farms and orchards are opening their doors to visitors.
Pick up a copy of the Creston Valley Farm Tours brochure at the Creston Visitor Centre, and spend a day exploring the area's organic fromagerie (cheese maker), wineries, cherry farm, pickle patch, and u-pick berry farms.
Kootenay Alpine Cheese Co.
The Kootenay Alpine Cheese Co. is a small-scale artisan producing flavourful and complex products. Cows on the Harris family farm provide high-quality milk for the cheese-making process.
Meet the farmer and his cows, and look inside the fromagerie where all the magic happens. The farm is located at 3071-16th Street in Lister, and is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
