Bellewood Farms Orchard & Distillery

Bellewood Farms is the largest apple orchard in Western Washington and the winner of the GOLD for Best Distillery in Bellingham Alive’s 2020 Best of the Northwest! Stop by and enjoy locally made spirits (that you would never guess came from apples) in their tasting room, food from the café, tours of the orchard, and check the schedule to come during one of their live outdoor music sessions.

        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.
