Event Details

Join us for Eat Local Month’s keynote event, a virtual Whatcom County Farm Tour, right from the comfort of your own home! We broadcast the tour on August 6th, followed by a conversation with local farmers answering questions from the community, where they shared their stories, struggles, and joys of farming. But you can tune in and watch the tour at your liesure! Fill in the form below to get access and view the tour – this is a FREE virtual tour – ENJOY!

  • Our ability to continue educating our community about our food system, and putting on the Whatcom County Farm Tour depends on how many people we are able to reach. We normally count the number of attendees to the event, and report back to our funders how many people we were able to host.
  • That's it! You'll be redirected to the watch page after you click submit. We'll also send you an email with a link to access the farm tour if you would like to watch at another time.

Featured Farm Details

Appel Farms & Cheese

Appel Farms started with a young man’s dream to be a dairy farmer. That dream brought him from his home and family in Holland to a bright future in the US. He established his dream farm in 1967 in Whatcom County and later began making cheese for friends and family. His hobby of cheesemaking blossomed and grew into the business it is today. Now two of his sons, with the help of their wives and children, carry on the farm and cheesemaking tradition.
