Visiting Armstrong BC
Visiting Armstrong BC, about 15 minutes north of the city of Vernon, in the North Okanagan Regional District (NORD), is a unique experience.
Largely an agricultural community, Armstrong British Columbia, draws us there for a number of attractions that we don't have in the South Okanagan.
A small city of about 4,500, set within the rural municipality of Spallumcheen, Armstrong is surrounded by beautiful farmland, and offers a unique variety of recreational choices.
Not to mention, the open feel of the widespread farmlands reminds us a bit of our Prairie roots.
Armstrong is just a short drive, on Highway 97A, 42 km (26 mi) southeast of Salmon Arm and 30 km (19 mi), and north of Vernon BC.
Aside from it's history of making fine artisan farmstead cheese, Armstrong BC is well known for Roger's Foods Ltd., Chickadee Ridge Miniature Horse Farm, Integrity Llama Farm, it's outdoor theater productions and it's community events, some of the oldest and largest annual events in the Okanagan.
Some great attractions there are the Village Cheese Company and the Caravan Farm Theater, an amazing outdoor theater that everyone enjoys.
