New Crop on BC Farms: RVs
'When Bruce and Kathy Wiebe opened the Orchard Hill RV campground on the front yard of their 13-acre farm in 2006, they were among the first people in Kelowna to take advantage of new provincial rules allowing up to 10 seasonal campsites on a farm in support of agri-tourism.
'The priority for us is to grow food, and yes, this isn't growing food, but it's a means to growing food,' Mr. Wiebe said."
The RV campsites generate between $20,000 and $30,000 for the family. Officials in the municipal government are looking at changing the rule that allows the campsites to proliferate.
