We are located in the heart of rural Whatcom County. Our 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 improve the quality of the product we were offering to our customers. 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. We have made our farm more sustainable through efforts to reduce the use of water by providing drip irrigation to our berry fields; promoting animal habitat by planting trees on our berry fields and at the dairy; rotating crops for the fairy and vegetables and growing cover crops. We choose crops that grow well in our climate and soil. By planting crops and varieties that grow well in the area we eliminate crops that have pest issues. Our produce is offered at our farm stand, local farmer's market and stores. We have implemented the use of reusable totes when delivering to our vendors to be more sustainable as a farm. Our farm is actively involved with our local food bank and the Small Potatoes Gleaning Project. Education is important to us and we open our doors to several community groups by leading tours of our farm to show where their produce comes from and to educate on farming. "There is an importance in buying local and supporting your local agriculture and business. There is something very satisfying about not spraying chemicals on the field and watching the natural systems. The fields are healthy, they produce great crops and there is life in the soil. My hope is to keep the local production going and to offer fresh, local and organic produce for my community for years to come." - Pete Dykstra, Hopewell Farm LLC
