Hunting for Fall Pumpkins in Whatcom County

Fall and pumpkins go hand in hand. There’s something so festive about massive pumpkins and how they emerge in perfect roundness from the earth. If you’re searching for where to find pumpkin patches, treat yourself to a visit at one of the local farms that stretch from Ferndale and Lynden to Everson. 

Here are suggestions for where to look when pumpkin hunting around Whatcom County!  

Bellewood Farms is famous for its apples, but it also has a pick-your-own pumpkin patch and an Apple Bin Express train ride every fall!  

Hop aboard the train and fill a bag of ripe apples. After that, head back toward the barn where you can stop by the corn maze, u-pick pumpkin patch, or the cafe for some fresh apple cider donuts and a slice of apple pie.   

Travel Tip: Bellewood has grown-up fun too! Their distillery features “farm-to-table” spirits including brandy, vodka, and gin. Enjoy unique flavors like their Honeycrisp Vodka or Pumpkin Spice Liqueur.

Dan Cramer's Western Town in Lynden has been offering a fall pumpkin experience for more than a decade. If you’re a pumpkin aficionado, you’ll enjoy the 30 different varieties on Cramer’s farm. The farm also offers extra fun.

“We have lots of farm animals for the kids to look at - ducklings, baby rabbits, a baby donkey, a couple of turkeys, calves, goats, and sheep," says Dan Cramer.

This is the place for picturesque photo ops with gorgeous views of Mount Baker on clear days. Food offerings include cotton candy, shaved ice, hot dogs, hamburgers, and more. If you have preschoolers, consider coming on a Friday when Cramer offers tours tailored to the Li'l crowds with instructions on how to grow pumpkins. 

Located in rural Whatcom County in the town of Everson, Stoney Ridge Farm is a great destination for hunting pumpkins while enjoying a beautiful Whatcom County setting.

Typically open Fridays and Saturdays in October, Stoney Ridge offers pumpkin patch fun for the whole family. Stop by the coffee shop for warm apple cider or delicious pumpkin donuts. A food truck may also be available on Saturdays.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
