Take a break from the hustle and bustle and come find some peaceful time out in the county.

 Have you ever wanted to wander around a farm and see what a land-based, first generation family business looks like?

 Imagine watching our current nursery full of 40 baby pigs frolicking around under four mamas’ watchful eyes…

  • Taste a grape ripe from the vine,

  • Learn how we compost, reuse, and upcycle all our waste on the farm,

  • Play with one of our barn cats,

  • Feed a fall apple to one of our 50 grower pigs in their field paddock.

  • Visit with the Whatcom Conservation District information booth to learn about all of their free and confidential services and incentive programs for rural landowners. 

 You can take it all in with your kids and relax in a shady (or dry) seat on our covered porch. Enjoy without being rushed. It’s truly something special.

 Farmers Matthew and Katie will be on hand in the barn and the field to tell stories and answer all your questions in person.

 Our farm stand will be open and fully stocked with all the high quality pork, pet treats, and wellness products we make here.

Will we see you there? We can't wait to meet you. Saturday September 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Another great way to participate in the Whatcom County Farm Tour is join our friends at Bike Northwest to ride between the five Everson farms on the tour.
