In the fall of 2002 we purchased a beautiful 5 acre farm on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley and we named it “Joie”. Joie has been a constantly evolving concept that began as a guesthouse and critically acclaimed cooking school, located outdoors, formerly in our orchard.
In 2007 the orchard was planted over to grape vines and a new winery building was built on the property. The story and of the cooking school and guesthouse have been captured in Heidi's
award winning book Menus from an Orchard Table (Whitecap, 2007). With the addition of our
own estate grown fruit in 2009, we have changed our name to JoieFarm to reflect our deeper connection to the place we call home.
