Long Description:
We visited Dickinson's Family Farm and had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Dickinson. He accompanied us on a tour of his orchard and we could tell how much he enjoyed talking about his fruit trees.

We did not climb the ladder, but you are welcome to climb to the top if you so wish. Of course this is at your own risk.

The World's Tallest Tripod Orchard Ladder was designed by Dwane Dickinson and built by a local resident of Summerland in 2000. 

It is recognized by Guinness World Records as the World's Tallest Tripod Orchard Ladder. The ladder is constructed primarily of wood and stands 30 feet 2 inches high, weighs approximately 500 lbs. It sits high above the orchard of fruit trees. 

Stop in and see the ladder and have your picture taken.  The folks at home will be amazed. 

Welcome to the Dickinson Family Farm and welcome to Summerland, the home of fine Okanagan cherries, pears , apricots, plums, peaches and prunes.

Come and enjoy fruit fresh from the tree, wander the orchard, watch the packing line, play amongst the artifacts....relax and enjoy the experience of nature. You are welcome to pick your own fruit. Also, available is fresh apple juice, crushed and prepared right on the farm, when in season.
