Gifts made by local residents, daily baked goods and apples from a bountiful harvest also are available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Bellewood Farms is located at 6140 Guide Meridian, about halfway between Bellingham and Lynden.
“Christmas is always a festive time at Bellewood Farms,” said Eric Abel, president of Bellewood Farms. “We want to continue to make it a safe place for guests to enjoy with family and friends. They’re welcome to take a free socially-distanced photo with the real Santa from 1-4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas.”
Guests are invited to gather around the bonfire and warm up with hot apple cider or a hot toddy. They also may wander over to the distillery’s tasting room and sample the new Bellewood Farms Holiday Vodka, aged with cinnamon and including a cinnamon stick in the bottle.
Beautiful Firs, Nobles and Frasers freshly cut from Alpine Meadows Christmas Tree Farm near Deming are available during store hours. “We heartily endorse the Whatcom Think Local First campaign and are happy to partner with other local businesses,” Abel said.
Of course, Bellewood Farms also offers apples, including their famous Honeycrisp variety, from a bountiful harvest of 1.7 million pounds this year, he added.
