Local cherries, desired worldwide
Coral Beach Farms is the leader in the British Columbian export cherry industry, and our namesake brand is the foremost Canadian cherry brand worldwide.
Superb quality is at the heart of our global success. Nature gives us a leading edge as British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley has a perfect moderate climate for growing large, flavourful, sweet cherries.
We diligently nurture our orchards to further enhance our geographical advantage. Our cherry orchards are managed to achieve optimum yields of highly sugared, firm fleshed cherries, with a strong shelf life. Further, our northerly latitude puts us in a unique market window after the bulk of the US harvest is complete.
