It’s a free self-guided tour of farms around the County who open their gates to visitors from 10am to 5pm. A lot of the farms offer special events, rides for the family, tastings, and more during the day.

It’s a great way to learn about how each participating farm produces their food, pick up some new skills (such as composting or cooking demonstrations), purchase some just picked produce at harvest season prices. It’s also just plain fun for the whole family!

Ride tractor trains, u-pick some vegetables, try some local cheese, savor fresh hazelnuts, or enjoy a picnic lunch with your friends. Whatcom Farm Tour is a celebration of this food producing paradise in which we live.
