Full Bloom Farm is located on an idyllic NW island in the Salish Sea. The views from the farm are open and expansive, across grass pasture and fields of peonies, deciduous and evergreen woods, stream and pond with abundant wildlife. Resident and migrating birds abound; song, sea and raptor.

Beaches are pebble and sand with driftwood and seaweed. In the summer swimming is possible on west facing beaches.

The island community is friendly and modest; people here are helpful, but private. We have a spectacular community library, an elementary school, a general grocery store, a post office, a charming cafe, and a world-class restaurant. There are numerous small businesses ranging from construction to massage. Many artists have studios here and sell their pieces from them. Artist Studio Tour weekends occur four times a year.

At Full Bloom Farm we sell fruit and vegetables and cut flowers in season at our farm stand, peony roots year around as available, and eggs always.

Outdoor activities are numerous. There are wonderful hikes, from easy to challenging. We have a very effective land trust organization which supports several publicly accessible conservation areas and a community garden. One of the conservation areas borders our farm on two sides.

Bike riding is safe, easy and fun! We offer guests three bicycles, (small, medium and large), in tuned-up condition for their unlimited use.

Lummi Island is a bit of a food mecca. The Willows Restaurant has been named one of the ten restaurants in the world worth flying to! The chef is a wunderkind who learned at Noma, in Denmark: named the best restaurant in the world. The Beach Store Cafe is supervised by the same chef. While it is very inviting, it is also quite humble and unassuming; the food is good, nourishing and creative.

There is a lovely, well-attended church on the island (Congregational). It is a abutted by an historic graveyard and backed by woods and beach. Our annual Harvest Festival is held there.
