The Gellatly Nut farm, located on the Westside of Okanagan Lake, is one of the oldest working nut farms in Canada. Started in the early 1900s by brothers Jack and David Gellatly, the farm soon became the hub of nut growing and breeding in North America. Today, the farm is home to over 800 nut trees and shrubs, including the beloved chestnut.

This cozy, reversible cowl has an all around nut-inspired textured pattern and options for a short or infinity cowl.
