My three boys and I went for a look around the farm last night. Doing this as a family is one of our favourite things to do. The day is busy with hard work and a focus to try and get the long ‘to-do’ list done. But the evening is a bit different. First of all, by the time supper is done, I’m usually too tired to get much more accomplished. The other thing is that evenings in the Okanagan are just so beautiful that it feels right to slow down and take a moment to enjoy the evening air.
A farmer, or gardener alike, sees amazing growth during the long days of summer sun. With the sun rising at 4:00 am and still out until after 9:00 pm, it’s amazing how each day the plants grow, the fruits swell, and the flavours deepen. Seeing the progress around the farm is a very rewarding thing for us to do after a long day of work.
At Davison Orchards we are open late on Friday and Saturday evenings. It’s a running joke in the family that it is one of our best kept secrets. The evenings at the farm are such a peaceful time of day. Things are quieter with fewer people around and the temperature is very pleasant. The way the sun hits the Bella Vista slopes at dusk is simply breath-taking. And really, with a fresh slice of pie and ice cream on the patio, it’s the perfect way to relax. Whether you’ve been at work all day long or playing hard at the beach, come and join us on the patio to wind down for the day!
Summer nights are only around for a few short months, in fact somehow, they are already half gone! We often hear of how you bring your visitors to the farm. We wanted to Thank you for doing that.
