Hopewell Farm is a certified organic and salmon safe family farm. Hopewell Farm is located in the heart of rural Whatcom County in Everson, WA. The farm is surrounded by lush green pastures for our certified organic dairy cows and is just minutes away from the Canadian border, the ocean and Mt. Baker with breathtaking views of the Canadian Cascades and from the vegetable fields the amazing scenery of Mt. Baker. Our farm's owner/farmer, Pete Dykstra, an electrician-turned organic farmer began raising heifers and growing vegetables in 1982. We then decided to go organic because he saw the opportunity to diversify into a new market and an improved quality of the product we were offering to our customers. In 1997 our farm was certified organic by Washington State Department of Agriculture. Pete's grandfather and father were farmers (father, Jim Dykstra built the dairy and farm house). The childen of Dorene and Pete also work at the farm, making the young Dykstra's 4th generation farmers.
Currently we have 16 acres of organic blueberries and farm about 30 acres of organic vegetables. We enjoy growing some of the sweetest carrots you will have ever tasted, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, onions, leeks, brussels sprouts, bi-color sweet corn, pie pumpkins, acorn squash, delicata, jack-o-lantern pumpkins, beets and blueberries!
