PENTICTON - A well known business located on Highway 3 near Hedley is making a move from the Similkameen to the South Okanagan.

Brent and Linette McClelland, owners of Doug’s Homestead, recently announced they would be moving the business to Kaleden after purchasing the Kaleden Restaurant.

Doug’s Homestead is an artisan meat shop located two kilometres west of Hedley and well known amongst the travelling public for its smoked and fresh meats.

It’s not an uncommon sight to see the parking lot of Doug’s Homestead filled with tourist trailers and recreational vehicles, and line-ups often form in front of the main entrance on summer mornings.

The business received an 82 per cent excellent rating in Trip Advisor and one review called Doug’s “a must stop for all carnivores.”

Brent says their intention is to expand the business through the purchase of the larger building, and expects to begin renovations around mid-November.

In additions to smoked meats, beef jerky, nine flavours of pepperoni and sausages of all kinds, Brent says he and wife Linette will be smoking hams and bacon in house at the Kaleden facility.

The couple also hopes to develop charcuterie and sell in-house charcuterie boards for take out. They expect to have room for seating as well.

“We’re going to continue doing what we’ve been doing, hopefully on a larger scale,” Brent says.

The McClellands will shut down the Hedley operation and are moving their family to Kaleden, where they will renovate the new premises in time for opening next spring.

The former Kaleden Restaurant on Highway 97 south of Penticton will soon be the new home of Doug's Homestead, an artisan meat shop well known to travellers on Highway 3.
