Cloud Mountain Farm Center
Cloud Mountain is a nonprofit community farm and education center in Everson, Wash. Created in 2011, after 33 years as a working farm, Cloud Mountain expands Whatcom County's food system by training individuals who wish to learn the business and agricultural skills needed to succeed in today's farming environment. Cloud Mountain continues to sell fruit and ornamental plants to the public at its retail nursery, located on the 20-acre farm at 6906 Goodwin Road. Proceeds support paid internships for aspiring farmers and nearly two dozen workshops offered free of charge to farmers and home gardeners. Additionally, Cloud Mountain continues to operate as a working farm and conducts field trials on a variety of fruit and vegetables in partnership with Washington State Department of Agriculture, Washington State University Extension, Community Food Co-op, and Whatcom Community Foundation. Seasonal fruits and vegetables grown at Cloud Mountain are available on site at the farm stand, as well as at Bellingham Farmers Market. Hours vary by season.
