Bellewood Farms, Lynden
Just outside Bellingham, Bellewood Farms is a favorite for kids and adults alike. Little ones will enjoy a ride aboard the "Apple Bin Express," a mini train that transports pickers to the U-pick area in the huge, 25,000 tree apple orchard. Parents will love stopping at the Country Café and Bakery for a delicious meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) followed by a stop at the distillery’s tasting bar.
Get pickin': As of late August, Bellewood was open for U-pick; check the Facebook page for U-pick hours. Also, check out the pumpkin patch (with a corn maze, corn cannon and more) from late September through Oct. 31. The Country Cafe, Farm Store and distillery are open daily from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. in the fall. Bellewood offers 20 apple varieties including Sansa, Jonagold, Mountain Rose (pink inside!), Golden Supreme and Honeycrisp. Bellewood also hosts fun music and tasting events.
