Farm Stores and Farmers Markets
Within just a few minutes of Carriage Hill Farm there are numerous Farm Stores and Farmers Markets. Some farms have farm stands that sell their produce on an honor system.
As the name suggests Samish Bay Cheese makes cheese. They also raise beef and pork that they sell in their farm store. The farm store offers sandwiches, macaroni and cheese (of course) and they have a few beers on tap along with wine for sale. They also fill growlers for a trip back to our B and B for late night consumption.
Bow Hill Blueberries has about 5 acres under cultivation. Most of the product in their store is produced from blueberries grown on their farm. They do buy some blueberries to produce their products but only heirloom varieties from certified organic farms. They produce juice, pickled blueberries(delicious), jams and jellies and package then right on property. Their blueberries are used in Lopez Island Creamery Bow Hill Blueberry flavor ice cream.
