Covert Farms invites you to enrich your senses in our Canadian
Signature Experience “A Culinary Journey through Canada’s
Desert” in partnership with Watermark Beach Resort.
From the rich, lush valley you find a sandy plateau next to the signature spot where the ice dam broke 10,000 years ago. The land now brings us outstanding wines and a myriad of ground crops and fruit trees to nurish the senses.
This personally guided 1-hour tour provides an educational and entertaining experience of breathtaking landscapes and sustainable farm practices. The passion, humor and individual approach to the experience is certain to leave the traveler with memories to cherish and an arm load of freshly grown organic produce and bottles of wine to share. Gene, Shelly and Derek are hands on passionate farmers, educators and chefs – they live the land and all it brings. Part of their passion is education and sharing their wisdom – they are eloquent, fun, passionate and knowledgeable. They are also committed to educating all of our senses – so the nature, geography, dirt, wildlife and earth all play a significant role in their experience and their daily lives. Both Gene and Derek are incredibly knowledgeable about agriculture, food and wine – and therefore speak to it passionately and from the heart. Shelly is an engaging educator and passionate about food and nutrition and organic farming. Her organic farm camps for kids are a summer hit, as are her school farm tours in the fall.
Back at the Watermark Wine Bar and Patio, local wines are paired with farm-fresh Okanagan Valley fare. Evening falls to the serenade of circling nighthawks and guests feel like they can almost reach out and touch the stars, brilliant against the ink-black night sky of a true Canadian desert.
