Wes Burdick
BC Tree Fruit Grower

Despite being a real estate agent, farming has always been in Wes Burdick’s blood. He grew up on a dairy farm and when he and his family relocated to the Okanagan from Alberta, it wasn’t long before he’d found himself the owner of an apple orchard.

A chance meeting and a spontaneous offer lead to an unexpected and happy change of pace for him. It was a steep learning curve, but when we met him in his Ambrosia apple orchard in September 2019, it seemed like he couldn’t be happier about getting back to his roots.

With ready-to-pick Ambrosia apples hanging from his newly planted trees, Wes shared his story with us. Would you like to hear it? We thought you would.
