Pin Cushion Country - The Vision

The vision for Pin Cushion Country came about rather naturally. In 1998, Art and Elsie Friesen were retiring from full-time farming in Alberta and wanted to move to the souther Okanagan. Having been in farming, and used to the freedom of being on the land, they didn’t want to move to a city lot. They attempted to find 10 acres to build a home and have a few animals or a sizeable garden, but they came up short.

Everywhere they looked the lots were too small, or not suitable for small recreational and farm use. Then they came across the in Cushion Country property within view of Keremeos. The property was larger than they originally wanted, but here they could build a dream.

They first built a cabin on 10 acres and irrigated it for hay. The property is now a vineyard. Then they moved to a second parcel on the same property where they fed calves and grew some strawberries. The second property is now a horse training facility.

Now for the first time, offered to the public with a choice of 18 different 10 acre lots. With the beautiful natural flowers, stunning prehistoric  rock formations and abundance of wildlife, each lot contains the same potential that the Friesens saw years ago. Prime with views, these properties may become small vineyards, horse pastures,  hobby farms and estate lots.
