September and October can be the best months at the Nut Farm....lots of nuts to pick, leaves changing colours, the little store open to purchase nuts. A lovely, quiet spot in the middle of condos and resorts.

We visited the nut farm and were so impressed with the information for visitors about the history of the farm, the spacious grounds, and the helpful volunteers. I've never seen such a collection of nut trees and I was excited that you could pick your own at a great price. I like new experiences, so I spent 30min picking hazelnuts... More

Close to the Cove Resort, this is a very pretty and relaxing place to go for a short evening stroll.

We went to check out this attraction as we could not believe such a place existed. We missed the tour times which was disappointing but our own fault. We did a self guided tour and we're basically amazed by this man's passion for nut trees and creating trees that would be productive and grow well in this area. Really, it... More

Several decades ago Dr. Bert Brink, a retired agronomist from UBC convinced Kelowna decision makers to preserve this orchard. A subdivision was going to take up all the land. The collection was of the best collections of nut germplasm in Canada. Living artifacts must be preserved and it's wonderful that people can now see that collection. It's important to remember...

The grounds are beautiful. Loved looking at the names of all the nut trees and reading about the history.

The Gellatly Family's heritage nut farm still stands in Westbank and is operated by the Gellatly Nut Farm Society. You can see the original family cabin located right on the beach as well as the pickers cabin that has also been preserved. In addition many of the original varieties of nut trees have been retained. I found the interpretive signs... More

Enjoyed visiting the historical site of the 100 plus year old nut farm. Purchased some butternuts for our room, cracking and roasting them for snacks. ( Be sure and buy a nut cracker there.)

We were told to visit by friend's who are locals - it was a great tip! Nice little park, interesting to walk around and read about the nut trees, I am only disappointed that we won't be here in the fall to see the nut harvest! Easy trails and little walk - great for kids! Several picnic tables, nice little... More
