KEREMEOS BC Horses are also prominent in the Valley, with Quarter Horses, Arabians, Appaloosas and Paints just to name a few.

Keremeos is a vibrant agricultural community located in the

beautiful Similkameen Valley of British Columbia.

The area has a well deserved reputation for producing fruits and

vegetables of exceptional quality.

It does not stop there however, as the Similkameen Valley is also

home to a large cattle ranching community featuring a Hereford

Bull Development Station.

Horses are also prominent in the Valley, with Quarter Horses, Arabians,

Appaloosas and Paints just to name a few.

The unique soil, the pure mountain water and the desert climate

of the Similkameen Valley all contribute to the success of all these

agricultural endeavours.

The Valley boasts one of the first “Certified Organic” organizations in

B.C., as well as conventional growers.

Their produce can be bought at the farm gate or at the areas

many fruit stands.

Our climatic conditions have also enticed a great number of peopl

e to come and retire in our Similkameen Valley, earning Keremeos

the title of the fastest growing Village in British Columbia.

The Valleys pace of life has not been affected by this growth, and

the people of the Valley still find time to greet visitors with the

pioneer spirit that is still so much a part of our heritage.

Keremeos also has one of the few remaining working Grist Mills

in North America.

Located just outside the Village, the restored Grist Mill has become a

destination in its own right.

In addition to the mill itself, visitors can wander through beautifully

tended Heritage Gardens, plots where historical or nearly extinct

varieties of wheat are being grown, visit the interpretation centre,

peruse a unique reference library, or just sit down and enjoy th

e food offering in the Tea Room.

In addition to the Grist Mill, a few miles west of the Village, you can

find a turn of the century covered bridge.

In the summer time this is a favourite swimming area for both

Valley residents and our many visitors.

However, don’t let this wealth of attractions mislead you, the best

part of the Valley is its people, and they are looking forward to meeting you.
