Kelowna Acreages and Farm Land

Kelowna has many acreage properties in Southeast Kelowna and on the  waterfront. Some of the largest prominent properties can be found within 15 to 30 minutes of downtown. Acreages under 10 acres of land zoned ALR may only have one residence. If the acreage is over 10 acres then a workers or pickers cabin may be built with permission from the Regional District. Some of these additional cottages are very elaborate.

 

Acreages are located in Kelowna, Lake Country, Joe Rich and West Kelowna. Many of the acreages are in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) and cannot be subdivided without submitting an application for consideration at the Regional District or West Kelowna. The cities try to keep the land in tack for agricultural use. Many of these acreages keep small crops or orchards so they can apply for tax exemption for operating as a farm. At present the orchardist’s are creating new species of apples that do not turn brown when cut, this is said to become a large export fruit.

ALR Land

It is not uncommon to see the ALR land within the city bouderies such as on Springfield Rod across from Orchard Plaza or on Benvoulin Rd. In the summer you can find fresh fruit and vegetables sold from the farms in small stands. There are also quite a few Organic farms which have become quite popular.

Climate

Kelowna has a borderline Oceanic/Humid climate. The coldest months average just above -3 Celcius or 26.6 Fahrenheit. You’ll enjoy dry hot summers and cold cloudy winters. If you’re looking for all four seasons, this is the place to find them.

Touted as the ideal place to live, Kelowna sports both Alpine skiing and Nordic skiing as well as boating, golf, hiking and wine tasting. For this reason, it’s considered the ideal luxury location for Canadians and those seeking a seasonal get-a- way.
