Come along as Explorations Northwest visits two Whatcom County raspberry festivals and highlights some of the best rural life has to offer.
The Boxx Raspberry Festival showcases nature's bounty and life on a family farm, while Lynden's Raspberry Festival is a community-wide event that offers something for everyone.
While they differ in size and scope, both festivals share many elements in common. For example, both festivals focus on kids and family, fostering a strong sense of community. And, both festivals suggest a simpler life grounded in traditional American ideals.
This segment of Explorations Northwest features the Lynden Raspberry Festival, sponsored this year by Haggen Food and Pharmacy, and we visit the beautiful Boxx Berry Farm, with its down home, country feel, farm store, wagon tours, and nourishing U-Pick possibilities.
By inviting families from throughout the region to visit their family farm, Mike and Roger Boxx are strengthening inter-generational ties and promoting wholesome farm family values, while enhancing the quality of life, right here in the Northwest.
