You’re all invited for a local (short) road trip!
Dorie Belisle of BelleWood Acres farm near Lynden has invited Whatcom Locavore to tour the farm next Sunday, October 17, and she suggested we invite our readers to come along! Here’s Dorie’s description of what we’ll do during the visit:
“You would learn how our apples are grown, packed and processed. We would taste several of the value added products we make including our Cider, Syrup, and Vinegar, our home ground peanut butter, dehydrated apple chips, and of course our pies, pastries and cookies.”
For a preview of what you’ll see, check out the farm’s website. The farm store is also open on Sundays, so you’ll have an opportunity to do a little local shopping after the tour, if you like.
We’ll be meeting at BelleWood Acres on Sunday, October 17 at 10a.m. in front of the farm store. There is no charge for the tour. Here are the directions from Dorie:
“We are just 6 miles north on the Guide [Meridian]. Turn right at the first round about which is Ten Mile Road. We are a quarter mile down on the right. You will see the apple on the barn roof.”
Here’s a Google map showing the farm’s location at 231 Ten Mile Road near Lynden.
Hope you’ll join us! It should be a lot of fun!
