Spring is finally here! It’s a time of renewal and growth, and we’re excited for both to start happening in the orchards and office!
Between trade shows and farming, it’s a busy time here at Okanagan Specialty Fruits, but we couldn’t be more excited to meet new people and get ready for another great growing season! Find out what why we’re so excited for spring:
- Planting – This spring we will be expanding our Arctic® orchards! There is nothing quite like seeing the fruits of your labor at the end of hard day of planting. Watch our planting video to see how it happens.
- Gardening – Gardening is a passion of several of our employees. Getting dirt under your nails is a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather coming our way, and having fresh veggies readily available doesn’t hurt either! Check out our tips for getting growing from earlier this month.
- Cycling – We’re big into the outdoors all year round, but come spring we’re ready to trade in our skis for bikes. Jenn Armen, our Director of Business Development & Marketing, is excited to be once again be taking part in the Tour de Fresh, and can’t wait to start training in warmer weather!
- Flowers – If you didn’t already know, spring is a beautiful time in the orchard! The apple blossoms open to entice bees for pollination, and are a feast for the eyes. Learn more about pollination in our Modern Apple Production infographic, and follow our Instagram for pictures of the orchard.
We can’t wait to share our spring progress with you! What are you looking forward to this spring?
