We are a small honour system roadside farm located in Invermere, B.C. in the Columbia Valley. All our produce and fruit is grown organically and with a love of the miracle that is gardening! The homestead was built by my great grandpa in the 1930’s and was a successful potato farm back then. The family has always loved to have our hands in the dirt!

Wloka Farms Fruit Stand is run by Barb and Frank Wloka and their marvellous staff. Frank grew up in Creston orchards while Barb married into the operation in 1980. Together, they owned and operated a fruit stand in Creston for 16 years while raising their family. During that time, many mistakes were made and lessons were learned. Then 10 years expat work/travel was followed by a return to the Creston Valley and 5 years of cherry harvesting (about 400,000 lbs annually). In 2012 the land was purchased at the corner of 36th Ave and Hwy #3. Planted to a mixed orchard, it became the base for the Fruit Stand which opened in 2014.
