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 around Bellingham, treat yourself to a visit to one of the local farms that stretch from Ferndale and Lynden to Everson.

Here are suggestions for where to go when hunting for pumpkins in Bellingham and 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, like draft horse rides to the pumpkin patch, a hay maze, tractor train rides, and more. 

“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. 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 beautiful Whatcom County, just 13 miles north of Bellingham and two miles west of Interstate 5, Home Farm U-Pick offers a pumpkin patch and so much more! 

Wander the farm, visit the pig pens, check out the antique tractors, shop the seasonal farm store, ride the tractor train, take memorable photos, enjoy hot cider, popcorn, and mini donuts (on select days), and of course pick pumpkins!

Choose from heirloom and specialty pumpkins in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors; orange carving pumpkins; an array of squash and gourds ready to eat or decorate with; corn stalks; and mums. 

At the Stoney Ridge Farm Fall Festival you're welcomed to one of Whatcom County's most idyllic farms. The farm features estate-grown pumpkins, u-pick apples, wagon rides, animals, mini donuts, corn maze, and much more. 

There will be live music on the first two Saturdays from 11am-1pm: Queens Bluegrass will play on October 7th and Prozac Mountain Boys will play on October 14th.

Admission is $5 per person with two and under free, but WECU members who show their debit or credit card can get in free. Cicchitti's Pizza and JT's Smokin' BBQ will also be at the farm 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.
