Location

Creston is located in southeast British Columbia, at the southern end of Kootenay Lake, bordering on Idaho. Its farming heritage is evident from the pastoral country acreages on all sides, with market gardens lining the entry from the east, and larger farms appearing on the way out of town along Highway 3. Growing conditions allow for soft fruit growing and amazing gardens!
