About us...

We have been growing cherries on our orchard in East Kelowna since 1903, but the Dendy family are now ready to retire, and pleased to introduce you to the new owners, Coral Beach Farms Ltd owned by David and Laura Geen and family.  So our Morning Glory brand will continue, but now be sold by their marketing company, Jealous Fruits!   The cherries will continue to be picked and packed at East Kelowna with our premium  cherries in the Morning Glory brand.  And local sales will still be available at the fruit stand! Local and fruit stand sales will continue to be managed by Domenic Rampone - and the fruit stand is open at the farm daily during the season, mid July to late August.  See Our Cherries to learn about our varieties.

Since 2004 Dendy Orchards was GlobalGAP® or CanadaGAPcertified, giving buyers and consumers assurance that our fruit - and all aspects of our production and packing practices - meet stringent standards for food safety, and environment, conservation, and labour practices. We are also certified under the BC Environmental Farm Plan, and winner of a Kelowna conservation award for innovation in introducing falconry for environmentally friendly control of birds. Coral Beach Farms will continue the tradition with their renowned standards and progressive direction in the lead of our BC cherry industry.

Export and Domestic Canadian bulk sales enquires should be made to Jealous Fruits.

Local enquiries to the farm may contact the orchard office at 778 478 3507.
