Summerland Farms – Fresh, Local, Organic
Agritourism opportunities abound on Summerland farms and vineyards, offering you a chance to get behind the scenes and connect with the land and the people who provide fresh, natural products and down-to-earth experiences.
The undulating blanket of lush vineyards and orchards is the first clue to the richness of our soil and culture. The second is the exquisite vintages served at the award-winning wineries nestled in the greenery. Our wine makers will be delighted to tell you all about their wines and answer any questions you might have.
In Summerland, farm-to-fork is more than just a catchy phrase – it’s a way of life. Choose from nutritious, freshly picked fruit and vegetables at our roadside fruit stands and ask about u-pick and orchard tours. Make a day of it (or RV camp) at Dickinson’s Family Farm and learn the tricks of cherry picking. Visit our farmers’ market held on Tuesdays from April to October in Memorial Park, and downtown on Sunday mornings enjoy the Summerland Sunday Market from June to September. Explore Summerland Sweets, a family business that has been processing fresh fruit in tasty and innovative ways since the 1950’s. Sample their wonderful syrups and fruit wines, and learn about the delicious alchemy of turning fruit into treats.
