Fall is coming our way but before you head out to the pumpkin patch or corn maze, there's one BC farm and wine tour this fall that you won't want to miss at Covert Farms. Located in Oliver, Covert Farms runs a unique, hands-on experience that will take you around their stunning property on an adorable vintage truck. Their organic farm produces award-wining wines and this tour and tasting all in one is the perfect way to set the mood for fall!
Your tour lasts from an hour to an hour and a half and you'll get to see the whole organic farm and winery. Sip delicious wine, ride in the back of a vintage truck and meet the adorable fluffy animals that call the farm home!
Your tour also includes a wine tasting with charcuterie so you'll be able to taste all the wonderful offerings on the farm while you're there. You'll also learn about the farm's sustainable practices and you'll get to try fresh organic produce right from the farm.
There are over 40 different kinds of organically grown fruits and vegetables on the farm including the grapes they use for their wines. After your tour, you can chill out on their patio and you're welcome to stay as long as you like!
As if you didn't already want to go check out this farm, they're also home to cute Highland cows that you'll get to feed as part of your tour. They're super fluffy and absolutely adorable. You will want to take one home but unfortunately you cannot.
Covert Family Farms Estate is in Oliver, B.C., about a five hour drive from Vancouver. If you're planning a fall road trip or want to squeeze in a visit to the Okanagan before summer ends, then this place has to be on your list.
