Keremeos could be called the "Orchard Village." Nearly one-third of its area is occupied by orchards. The economy of the area has been based on agriculture since the first settlers arrived in the mid-nineteenth century. Abundant sunshine and a vast, replenishing aquifer make the lower Similkameen Valley one of Canada's most productive farmlands. Area farmers are justifiably proud of the tree fruit, ground crops, grapes, and beef cattle produced in the area.

Steep, rocky mountain sides and long slides of fine material give the Keremeos area a look found nowhere else in British Columbia. Californian Big Horn Sheep and Mountain Goats can be seen frequently on mountainsides.
