This is basically an ice cream shop. The ice cream is ok but overpriced and there aren't many flavours. The *cheapest* cheese is $55/kg and you have to pay to taste it. There are no tours unless you make an appointment and have at least a party of 8, so don't expect to pet any goats. The panini are ok... More

We went for a nice drive down Lake Shore Drive. There are some nice day parks and wineries on the way. A group of four saw the above attraction; we saw young and old goats running in the barn and the rocky pasture. The group went into the retail office and taste tested several types of goat cheese & gelato.... More

I'm not sure where to begin. We stumbled upon this gem not really knowing what to expect. I'll start off by mentioning the beautiful scenic drive to arrive at Carmelis. They offer a cheese sampling experience ($2, which is waved if you end up purchasing any goods, and you will!). But also, they offer goat milk gelato! An added bonus.... More

I went to visit in July 2016. Had a great experience, saw the goats, sampled the wonderful cheese, and lastly left with a great gelato cone. However, I purchased a few cheeses and they all molded before the listed expiry date. Some were not even opened before they molded. I contacted the company to see what their policy is and... More

This was our first stop on a tour of interesting places to visit near Kelowna that might complement wine tasting and this was a pleasant surprise. We did the tasting of the 9 various goat cheeses on offer and although we liked all of them, Heavenly, Dill & Onion cream cheese, and regular feta stood out for us. Make sure... More

This picturesque farm is on a hillside overlooking the lake. They had a little over 100 goats at the time of our visit, 80 of which were milking goats. The goats have access to an outside hillside as well as a couple of interconnected barns inside. It's a lovely setting and the animals appear to be well cared for and... More

This was my first time to visit a goat farm! We tried 10 different kinds of goat cheese and all were excellent! And the gelato was fabulous! Give it a go! You won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed a quick trip here to try all the cheeses and ended up buying several to take home. Gelato was also very good.

We had a fun time stopping by Carmelis while in Kelowna! It's about a 20-30 minute trip from city centre, but well worth it. Creamy ice cream & the tasting of 9-10 different goat cheeses is only $2 (waived if you buy cheese to take home). The cheese is high quality - my favourite was the Goatgonzola, a blue cheese...
