Find Local Food and Adventure on the Farm to Table Trails

Sustainable Connections, in partnership with Bellingham Whatcom Tourism, is excited to announce the launch of the new and improved Farm to Table Trails, a gamified pass that leads local food lovers to farms, restaurants, markets, and farmstays across Northwest Washington. These local businesses grow, produce, sell, and serve delicious foods. Foodies and friends can visit the unique places that put this region on the map – all while unlocking discounts, promotions, and prizes too. Participants check in at Farm to Table Trails locations to earn points to redeem for Eat Local First swag... and enjoy the reward of delicious food too, of course!

Locals and visitors to the region can explore eight self-guided trails. Cream of the Crop from Blaine to Custer highlights the delectable offerings from north Whatcom, while Eat Local Lynden helps folks discover the agricultural and culinary gems of lovely Lynden. Foodie Fun in Ferndale immerses travelers in the gourmet tastes, cheese shops, and seafood markets of Ferndale. Bites of Bellingham features local farms and restaurants within the city and includes fan favorites like the Bellingham Farmers Market as well as newer businesses like Raven Bakery’s recently opened brick and mortar location.

Eat, Drink & Stay in Everson invites foodies to explore the wonders of eastern Whatcom County, all enjoyed with majestic views of the Mt. Baker foothills. Participants might adventure across the bay by car or bike to embark on the Yummy Lummi Island trail, delighting in the treats and treasures of this beautiful island. Folks can travel down scenic Chuckanut Drive to try Treats in a Row from Edison to Bow. Finally, Food for You on Route 542 is a trail that takes foodies to explore the offerings on and near the Mt. Baker Highway.

“The Farm to Table Trails are fun and easy ways to discover delicious food and charming locales in our region,” says Jessica Gillis, Sustainable Connections’ Food and Farming Program Manager. “Farming and fishing are such labors of love, and these trails are also a chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to get food from the farm to the table.”

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
