2018 Whatcom Farm Tour Weekend September 8 - 9

Get the full farm-to-table experience in the Bellingham region with Whatcom County Farm Tour Weekend, Sept. 8 - 9, 2018. Discover Whatcom County Farms on one of the best and longest running farm tours in Washington State, and enjoy local bites and sips at three tasty locavore events. Participants can start their culinary adventure with the Farm Tour Brunch at Cosmos Bistro, attend the Farm-To-Pint Pairing at Boundary Bay, and sample wine, cheese and chocolate with Twin Sisters Creamery, Chocolate Necessities and Samson Estates Winery. The Whatcom County Farm Tour will be running Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It's free, family-friendly, and self-guided. Each stop at local family farms and farmers markets is unique with educational opportunities, fun activities and more. Tour-goers can meet farmers, learn about what it takes to grow local food, enjoy hayrides, taste farm veggies and products, meet farm animals, sample wine, and pick up their weekly groceries. Old farm tour favorites are back like Twin Brook Creamery - a Lynden owned and operated dairy since 1910, as well as stops like Matheson Farms, a sustainably run grass-fed cow and yak ranch. The Farm Tour is free, but attendees can donate $15 to become a Farm Tour VIP. VIP will get amazing coupons, discounts, and farm products at almost all stops including a free cheese bag at Ferndale Farmstead Cheese and a free farm tour bouquet at Triple Wren Farms. Badges can be purchased in advance or on the day of the Farm Tour at any of the stops. Participants are encouraged to bring a cooler to keep fresh foods cold, and are invited to bike to any of the farms, but are asked to keep dogs at home. Detailed farm descriptions and a map are available at EatLocalFirst.org or at the Bellingham Visitor Information Center.
