Healthy living comes naturally in Keremeos. The Village is located in one of BC’s most productive farming valleys. The surrounding area has the highest concentration of organic farms in Canada and is known as the Organic Farming Capital of Canada. The air is so clear you can see the goats grazing high up on famous K Mountain. The wild Similkameen River shimmers under more than 2600 hours of annual sunlight. In the language of the Sylix People, Keremeos means “meeting of the four winds.” Keremeos is also the place where mountain tributaries rush down to meet the Similkameen River. Keremeos is where desert meets grassland, grassland meets forest and forest meets alpine tundra. It truly is a place of meeting. The Village of Keremeos is striving to heighten the environmental and conservation awareness in the area.
