About BelleWood Acres
Nestled in the shadow of Mount Baker, BelleWood Acres is a favorite destination for families and private groups in northwest Washington, and the Canadian southwest. Blessed with rich soil, cool climate and beauty as far as the eye can see, our farm is perfect for delicious, locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as lots of relaxing fun.
BelleWood Acres is owned and operated by John and Dorie Belisle, who, with their family, planted the initial orchard in 1996. With more than 25,000 fruit trees, the orchard is one of the largest U-Pick operations in western Washington. Our goal has always been to grow the best apples in Whatcom County and to provide visitors with many fun filled days on the farm.
Everything at BelleWood Acres is done with a philosophy of strong community and responsible farming. We are active members in several local organizations such as Sustainable Connections, The Tenmile Creek Watershed Project, Whatcom Farm Friends, Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association and the Puget Sound Food Network.
We firmly believe in Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an information based decision making process that provides the softest solutions to a pest problem. With the use of IPM, we strive to obtain healthier ecosystems without compromising effective pest management. We are the first Salmon Safe orchard certified in the State of WA.
