Sneak Peek at Untangled Cidery and Row Fourteen at Klippers Organics
Curious about what the Klippensteins have been working so hard on for the last year or more? They've recently launched their own cider made from their own organic apples and along with that a cidery and tasting room. 

But if that wasn't enough - they also opened a restaurant, Row Fourteen, which features their own organic produce. 

Thinking of exploring the beautiful Similkimeen Valley? Make sure you stop at Klippers Organics and if you're looking for a place to stay - they have guest suites for rent as well!
