Carmelis Goat Cheese Artisan


This is a fabulous little family run goat cheese farm located alongside Okanagan Lake. A scenic 12km drive from the heart of Kelowna it specializes in small-batch goat cheeses made on site in traditional French fashion

The cheeses are delightful artisan fare and their 13-cheese tasting pairs them with local preserves offered for sale in the gift shop. Our favourite pairing is their soft ripened cheeses Heavenly or Chabichou served with the sautéed onion and balsamic compote on a fresh baguette, but we also enjoy a refreshing home made gelato, especially on a hot summers day.

Valley Vagabonds Inside Tip

Be prepared to get a little dirty vagabonding the farm in search of lake views, as the farmyard goats leisurely sunbath along the hills. You will also encounter some authentic barnyard smells as you make this stop part of a memorable daytrip. This pick is also a featured venue in our DIY Day Trips.
