About Us

Grandpa Leo Gatzke fell asleep on the train, missed his stop and began an Oyama legacy that now spans 4 generations. From the beginning, the Gatzke Family has never forgotten the heart of the orchard, exceptional fruit and outstanding customer service.

A table in the Cafe awaits you, the grass in front of the Big Blue Stage invites you, award winning Okanagan wines and spirits tempt you to kick back in the Bowery Outdoor Venue and absorb the spirit of the Farm. Scents rising from the outdoor pizza oven beckon you with gluten-free artisan-al delights ‘stripped’ right before your eyes. Stop by for a piece of Grandma Gatzke’s apple pie, today crafted by her Great Granddaughters. An unforgettable family, proudly supported by Agriculture and Tourism.

Nestled in Lake Country in the Central Okanagan Valley, the Gatzke family has been proudly farming in Oyama, B.C. since 1929. Gatzke’s Orchards currently grow over 50 varieties of tree fruit throughout the season, in the most natural and sustainable way, which guarantee premium quality of the fruit & vegetables.

Gatzke Orchard’s is a 4th generation family owned and operated farm, steeped in agricultural history. Leo’s grandson Alan, his wife Ingrid and their two daughters continue to maintain the family operation and the legacy that Leo started 80 years ago.
