Young Farmers

Kelsey Rieger  and Suzanne Rieger

Kelsey Rieger grew up on her family farm, Orchard Corners, in Kelowna. It’s a small farm; 15 acres planted mostly in apples and the rest in peaches, pears, plums and blueberries. The senior Riegers, wanting to retire, put the farm up for sale. Of their three children, only Kelsey was interested in taking over.
