Tranquille Farm Fresh in Kamloops, British Columbia
Tranquille Farm is a historic farm site over 149 years old, located in the city of Kamloops British Columbia, 15 minutes from downtown. It is located in a stunning setting nestled between the shores of Kamloops Lake to the south and the famous Lac Du Bois Grasslands Park to the north. The protected Tranquille Wildlife Management to the east and the Tranquille Ecological Reserve to the west complete a quartet of neighbours most farmers would die for.
The Tranquille Farm is being reborn as a leading edge urban farm that will be integrated into the Tranquille on the Lake development. Forty one thousand square feet of magnificent historic barns and other farm buildings have been restored and will be serving the new community as a market centre where urban food research, crop production, value added food production, and culinary skills will be pursued and celebrated. Simply put, their vision is to be the industry leader in the art of urban farming inside of a sustainable master planned community.
