Gellatly Nut Farm

GELLATY NUT FARM REGIONAL PARK

Gellatly Nut Farm is over 100 years old.  It became a Regional Park in 2005.  Jack Gellatly first started experimenting with nut growing in the early 1900’s.  His goal was to develop cultivars that combined high quality kernels with tree and bud hardiness.

Although the park is open year round dawn to dusk, the nut harvest takes place Sept. to mid Nov.  The harvest is managed by the Gellatly Nut Farm Society and 100% of the proceeds are used for improvements and restoration projects within the park.

The GNFS is working closely with the Regional District of Central Okanagan to preserve the heritage nut trees and Jack’s lifelong work.  Watch for the annual Harvest Festival in late September.

U-Pick & Already Picked Available.

HOURS: dawn to dusk,  7 days a week year round. Nut Sales are Sept – Nov 9 am – 4 pm daily.

LAST DAY OF NUT SALES WILL BE OCTOBER 19th, 2016
