Neighborhood Kids family fun in bellingham & whatcom county


Whatcom County U-Pick Farms

Living in Bellingham makes it easy for families to access products grown right here in our own county. With a weekly farmers market and plenty of local grocers and restaurants purchasing produce directly from local farmers, it’s easy to incorporate fresh, seasonal foods into your child’s diet.

And what’s more fun than simply purchasing locally grown fruits and vegetables? Picking it yourself! A family trip to a local farm allows kids to get up close and personal with their food, and it might make them more willing to try different vegetables.

Lots of Whatcom County farms have “u-pick” options for fall favorites during the autumn season. Check out this list from Sustainable Connections of Whatcom County U-Pick Farms.
