“A goat cheese convert now !”

Carmelis Alpine Goat Cheese Artisan
Ranked #2 of 25 Shopping in Kelowna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 June 2014

You don't actually get to see many goats-there are only 35 there apparently so much of the milk is bought in. However, there is a lovely cheese shop and helpful friendly staff. We were served by Acacia and she talked knowledgeably about the whole range of cheeses from the soft and creamy cheeses to the harder Gouda type and Goatanzola-thank you. You can buy any amount of cheese here and gelato; you can also have a coffee and a panini.
Not much else to see-the goats graze the rocky hillside, but, well worth a visit. Combine it with the wineries nearby.

Love the family owned business and tour that they offer. The samples of goat cheese made it easy to decide on what we wanted and it was all great quality. Nice touch for them to offer lunch service there even if fairly casual. Definitely loved the goat cheese gelato and was saddened that we couldn't take any to go. Friendly, family oriented, but great for anyone.

The Carmelis goat farm in Kelowna is at the end of a beautiful drive. They offer samples of a variety of goat cheese. It is a bit expensive but the cheese is of the highest quality. We bought almost every kind there and are enjoying trying them in different recipes or on their own.
The gelato is so good and great for those of us who are lactose intolerant.
The staff are very helpful and know their product. They offer cooking tips for various cheeses which are very helpful.

We visited the goat farm in March 2014. There were the cutest baby goats (kids) we were able to watch in the barn. It reminded me of the youtube video "Buttermilk plays with her friends". Good for kids and adults.

The girl in the store was friendly, helpful and attentive and offered us samples. We purchased a beer soaked hard cheese and a chevry dill and onion. Can't wait to try them!

The farm is a bit out of the way (although there was a sign that makes me think they may be moving soon?), but it's worth the visit!

It's a cool goat farm and a shop positioned in a beautiful place with a great view. That's it. You can probably find similar setups everywhere you go in North America. But it deserves the above-average rating simply because their weird goat milk gelato tastes pretty good, and because besides this farm, a few of average vineyards and a lake with a promenade, Kelowna doesn't have much to offer. The Carmelis farm is decisively one of the area's highlights. When you are there, check out how the dogs herd the goats, it is pretty cool.
