Ravi & Jasmeen Dhaliwal

Dhaliwal Family Farms

The Dhaliwal Family Farm story began over 25 years ago, when Gian & Iqbal Dhaliwal brought out an existing orchard back in 1994 - and they have been proudly supplying Western Canada ever since. The farm has now been passed on to their son Ravi and his wife Jasmeen who continue the day-to-day operations.

Their BC Cherries are grown on the slopes of Western Oliver along with other high mountain grown fruit that is ready to harvest later in the summer season. All their fruit is available under the Okanagan Sunrise Brand or at a local farmers market.

Since 2006, they have been producing fresh juice and ciders under their Orchard Hill Estate Cidery label.
