There’s always fun at Bellewood Farms! You’re invited to attend any of our year-round events or create your own—we offer a beautiful venue for your next private party, corporate meeting, wedding, or farm experience. Here’s what’s happening at Bellewood in 2019:
July 26th-September 13th: Farmtunes Concert Series (6-9pm)
Every Friday night from 7/26-9/13 we’ll be featuring different artists from all over the PNW to serenade us at the end of our week. Bring the whole family and enjoy a burger and beer from our country cafe while you sit and relax beneath the summer sky and let the kids roam in the tire garden. While you’re here check out our free tasting room and try our farm made spirits. These concerts are FREE for the community to enjoy!
08/23/19 Weatherside Whiskey Band - Farmtunes Concert Series
Weatherside Whiskey Band’s five piece alt-country and bluegrass ensemble has been resonating with Pacific Northwest crowds since they stormed the scene with a seven-track EP, “Pickin’ the Pines” in 2012. This “whiskey-swilling roadhouse outfit” is renowned for its down home sound with three-part vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, percussion, and upright bass. http://www.weathersidewhiskeyband.com/
8/24/19 MEET YOUR FARMER SERIES
Whatcom Family Farmers and Bellewood Farms have partnered to bring you an afternoon of family-friendly educational activities and fun. Individuals and families can meet the farmers who grow and produce your food, sample some products, win some raffle prizes, learn about local farming in Whatcom County, and have a great time! This event is free and open to the public. Join us from 2-5pm to learn about some of our vendors and where your food comes from! This event series was made possible in part thanks to Whatcom Community Foundation’s Project Neighborly.
08/30/19 The Lowest Pair - Farmtunes Concert Series
With their bare-bones instrumentation and country-inspired, heartstring-tugging narratives, The Lowest Pair might be one of the best under-the-radar Americana duos today.https://thelowestpair.com/
09/06/19 Handsome and Gretyl & Moody Bear - Farmtunes Concert Series
Handsome and Gretyl is an upbeat, indie folk pop duo, and a married one at that. Gretyl sings and writes the songs and Handsome, aka Brett, conveniently produces and records them. Their live show is an inviting and fun experience. One H&G supporter said it best- “it’s as if you were just sitting on their front porch, listening”. http://www.handsomeandgretyl.com/
Moody Bear offers melancholic indie vibes accompanied by raw, honest vocals. Frontman and writer, Caleb Jacobson, grew up in the Midwest and moved to the Pacific Northwest 5 years ago. Moody Bear’s music reflects the dynamic range in the Washington mountains and oceans. From dreamy melodies and guitar parts to driving bass and anthemic vocals, Moody Bear delivers a relatable version of the human experience through song. https://www.moodybearmusic.com/
09/13/19 Pickled Okra - Farmtunes Concert Series
Pickled Okra is in an entirely different category of Americana string band. Skirting the edges of many genres, their sound and style is perhaps the child of bluegrass married with funk, reggae, rockabilly, and some other surprises. At the core of it all is the Pickled Okra duo: Todd and Paisley Gray, a charmingly quirky yet well-dressed ol’ married couple. Their intricate harmonies weave together with the high tones of mandolin, and low bellows of the upright bass. Banjo is often added to the mix, and dished out with expertise by one of several renowned local masters. They have gained recognition for delighting audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest, and their recordings have attracted the attention of music industry fixtures as far away as the UK. http://getokra.com
09/22/19 Skookum Rocks the Farm with Mark Scibilia
