Located amidst orchards and vineyards, Summerland Sweets is a family-owned and operated business that has been producing quality fruit products since 1962. F.E. (Ted) Atkinson founded Summerland Sweets shortly after retiring from his work at the Federal Agricultural Research Station in Summerland where he acted as head of the food processing lab for many years.
Our original products were our apple, cherry and apricot fruit jelly candies, after which pancake syrups and gourmet jams were soon added to the product line. Since its modest beginning the business has grown considerably and now offers much more to our visitors! In 2008 Sleeping Giant Fruit Winery was opened and with the guidance of winemaker, Ron Taylor, now produces 17 off-dry table wines and 11 dessert wines, all from BC-grown fruit.
All year-round we welcome visitors to our country store to enjoy watching our production video, sample our delicious jam, syrup and wine or relax with an ice cream cone in our picnic area!
