The Gellatly Nut Farm Regional park is over 100 years old and if officially became a park in 2005. Jack Gellatly first started experimenting with nut growing in the early 1900’s. His goal was to develop cultivars that combined high-quality kernels with tree and bud hardiness.
Although the park is open year round dawn to dusk, the nut harvest takes place Sept. to mid Nov. The harvest is managed by the Gellatly Nut Farm Society and 100% of the proceeds are used for improvements and restoration projects within the park.
The GNFS is working closely with the Regional District of Central Okanagan to preserve the heritage nut trees and Jack’s lifelong work.
