Fall Favorite: Harvest Time at Bellewood Farms

Bellewood Farms, in Lynden Washington, has been a Whatcom County favorite for years, especially in the fall when the air is crisp, and apples are ready to be picked.  

Travel Tip: In 2020, Bellewood took home the GOLD for Best Distillery by Bellingham Alive Magazine 


The original owners, Dorie and John Belisle, opened their farm to the public in 2002 and 10 years later opened the Bellewood Farmstore, Cafe and Distillery. In the fall of 2018, The Abel family took over operations at Bellewood and have continued to expand the farm with new entertainment and education activities in the fall and summer. 


This fall Bellewood Farms is hosting Harvest HappensExperience a free apple bin train ride through the orchard and to the UPICK apples as well as a free corn maze. Bellewood also has fresh cider donuts, kettle corn, fresh cider, caramel apples, and farm-fresh apple pie.  


If you hop aboard the Apple Bin Express, you’ll end up in Bellewood’s apple orchard and trust me it doesn’t take long to fill a bag of ripe apples. After that, head back towards 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: Nothing pairs better with Bellewood apples than their homemade honey-roasted peanut butter, which can be purchased at Bellewood or at any Bellingham Haggen.  

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 flavors.  

You don’t have to live close or stop by to experience Bellewood though. You can now visit their online store and have the apples shipped to you!
