Coral Beach Farms is a family farm owned by David and Laura Geen. We are the fourth generation of the Geen family raising fruit in the Okanagan Valley; a tradition started by C.H. Geen who planted orchards here in 1904. Fruit growing is in our blood. We have the passion, and the intimate knowledge of the area's soils and climates, needed to coax the finest possible cherries from our orchards.
We are supported by a dedicated and talented staff who are as committed to the success of our farms as we are. Coral Beach Farms currently has over 400 acres of cherries in production, and to meet increasing demand, we have planted additional acreage, and have expectations to double our production capcity over the next 5 years. We are proud of our reputation in the marketplace, and our contributions to our community, and look forward to the tradition sustaining itself with future generations of our family.
We are blessed to raise our cherries in one of the most scenic corners of the world! Our photo gallery shows just a snapshot of the beauty that surrounds us.
We have two dedicated Camp Sites if you would like to stay at the farm. Interested in a summer job cherry picking, quality control, shipping and logistics, forklift, tractor driving and more? Check out our summer job board, photo gallery, day in the life of...and videos.
What we want to achieve
We consider it our mission to be the "first choice" supplier of customers demanding premium quality cherries throughout the months of July, August, and September. We firmly believe that providing consistent premium fruit, available over a longer season, will attract a new following of devoted cherry lovers; to the benefit of all the stakeholders of Coral Beach Farms including our customers, our employees, and the final consumer.
Coral in Canada?
Yes, global warming is upon us, but no, there is no Coral in Canada! For the curious, Coral Beach Farms is named after the fine coral coloured shale that graces the beaches lining the northern shores of Okanagan Lake.
These pink coloured beaches contrasting with the deep blue of the lake give the area it's unique scenic character.
When you come to the farm you will see a sign outside for Jealous Fruits. Jealous Fruits is the sales and marketing division of Coral Beach Farms and offers farm-direct cherries to qualified wholesale and retail partners around the globe.

Just don't take our word....
I haven't stopped raving about Coral Beach since I came back to England! It's a hectic 7 weeks but the location, the people I met and the experience made it all so worthwhile. I was able to use my languages on the Front Desk and explore a part of Canada I had never been to before. As far as a working holiday goes, I'd say Coral Beach is right up there!
