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 to one of these farms that stretch from Ferndale and Lynden through to Everson. 

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

Bellewood Farms & Distillery is well known 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 Apple Bin Express and fill a bag of ripe apples. After that, head back toward the barn, you can stop by the corn maze, u-pick pumpkin patch, or stop by the Cafe for some fresh apple cider donuts or a slice of apple pie.   

Travel Tip: Bellewood has grown-up fun too! In 2012 they opened their distillery which features “farm-to-table” flavors. My personal favorite is Bellewood’s Bruce Liquor, the new Barrel-Aged Gin, and their limited-time Pear flavor.   

Cramer’s Western Town & Pumpkin Patch in Lynden has been offering a fall pumpkin experience for more than 13 years! If you’re a pumpkin aficionado, you’ll enjoy the 30 different varieties on Cramer’s farm. 

This year expect a hay jump, a petting zoo, pony rides, a corn maze, train rides (barrels pulled by an antique tractor), and horse-drawn wagon rides to the pumpkin patch. 

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

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, and, hamburgers. 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 Ferndale, Triple Wren Farms grows blueberries and flowers in the summer and shifts to focusing on pumpkins in the fall. It’s also home to an apiary, so be sure to taste some honey before you drive off.  

The pumpkins at Triple Wren range from warty to striped, giant to miniature, and everything in-between. Some are perfect for carving, others perform better if you want to cook with them.  

        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.
