Columbia Valley & East Kootenay
The Agri Park at the Invermere crossroads on Highway 93/95, is an ongoing project of the Windermere District Farmers Institute (WDFI).
When completed it will be a focus for the development of locally produced food in the Columbia Valley. The Institute partners with, and will continue to partner with, individuals, companies or co-ops, to build facilities to produce local food products.
Currently, there is a large fair/festival ground that is host to the annual Summer Fair. The Institute is in the process of building an abattoir which will assist local ranchers to be able to produce top quality meat products for local markets at a much lower cost.
The vision for the future of the Agri Park includes the possibility of:
- An interpretive exhibit to showcase agriculture in the area
- Exhibitions, markets, performances
- Community cold storage
- Grain production and processing centre
- Deli, bakery
- Restaurant featuring local food
The Agri Park is looking for local businesses which would be of benefit to the community.
