Whidbey Island Food Lover's Paradise

If you enjoy travel destinations that celebrate local farmers and good food, you'll love Whidbey Island. With an excellent Farmer's Market and numerous small local family farms, Whidbey Island is a place that raises good eating to an art form.

Local Farms

With mild winters and long summer seasons, the Puget Sound is an excellent place for farmers to raise a wide range of produce from tender lettuce to juicy sweet berries to edible flowers. Whidbey Island is a jewel among the San Juan Islands of the Puget Sound. Here you can find family farms tucked away on quiet country road, surrounded with gently rolling hills that sweep down to the ocean shore. Many of these farms welcome visitors and can be easily reached by car or on an afternoon bike ride. Rent a bike in Oak Harbor and take a tour of the Island.

Hastie Lake Farms - Hastie Lake Farms is a small multi-generational family farm. With a poultry farm, fresh produce and flowers, Hastie Lake Farms is an excellent example of the best of what a family farm can offer. The poultry farm has field-fed chickens and turkeys and all of the produce and flowers are grown on the farm and are fresh picked daily. Handcrafted vegetable soaps are also available for sale.

A Knot in Thyme - A Knot in Thyme is an active horticultural farm located in Oak Harbor. They offer dried flowers, lavender and gifts focused on farm products.

Case Farm - Also located in Oak Harbor, Case Farm is a family farm with a wide range of products, from vegetables, beef calves, grain and hay. In the fall they are open for pumpkin picking.

Hummingbird Farm Nursery and Garden - Hummingbird Farm Nursery and Gardens has a wide range of unusual vegetables, herbs, vines and trees. Observe demonstration centers and participate in their classes about gardening and the benefits of gardening.
