Why Buy our Cherries?

Fresh & Tasty:
Our cherries are picked at their optimum maturity and picking / delivery damage is minimized. We Care about the Food we Grow!

You know exactly where they came from and we participate in a yearly audited On-Farm Food Safety program.

Supporting Canadian Agriculture:
Sustainable & Responsible Farming Practices:  We are minimalists when it comes to the use of Pesticides, Herbicides & Fungicides.  We also enjoy the use of Clean BC Lake water for Irrigation with no run-off from farm animals.

Ethical & Respectful Employment:  Our crew are mostly French Canadian Students, but all are welcome.  We provide fair wages, good facilities and a fun environment.

What does the CC stand for?

Many people ask us about the CC in CC Orchards.  Originally, it was just Ciaramella & Ciaramella – aka:  Trish & Joe.

We have to admit though, that we have received many guesses and suggestions from friends and family over the years.  The list has now grown to include:

The current list of suggestions:

  • Ciaramella & Ciaramella
