Visitors can enjoy plenty of walking paths through the berries, roads for bicycle and scooter riding, and an abundance of opportunities for nature study (Eagles, Snow Geese, Ducks, and other birds), photography, and other artistic endeavors.

Start your day with countryside views, breathing in the fresh air while watching the sunrise over Mt. Baker. Take in the beauty that is this vast land. End your day with mesmerizing sunsets while relaxing in front of your private firepit 🔥 Crates of wood are available to purchase.

Explore the gardens, take a walk through the berries and say hello to our cows, chickens, goat, and pig. Stop awhile and take in the panoramic views!

There's no shortage of fun outdoor activities here on the farm and beyond.

𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐎𝐍𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐄 𝐒𝐓𝐎𝐑𝐄Cook up farm-fresh meals by purchasing ahead via our store website – enjoy home-grown eggs, sausage, bacon, Wagyu beef, and other delicious meats.

And don't forget to bring a cooler so you can take some beef, chicken, and pork back home with you. Once you taste it you'll want more! For more pictures and videos, check out our website, or you can find us @oostemafarmstead on IG or FB.


While the Farmstead is tranquil, you may hear farm equipment occasionally from the neighboring farms and on our farm. We do have workers that access the Raspberry Fields from the driveway on our property and, unfortunately, we cannot predict when they will be working in the fields – our work on the farm is controlled by nature 😊

The Main Farmhouse also offers a charming apartment. (We reside on the upper level of the Main Farmhouse). This offers 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths with a large living room, kitchenette, and private patio. Or if you are into Tiny Living, our Tiny Farmhouse is also available, an excellent option for a group vacation. 

While the campground is located within a shared space on the Farmstead. You will see us working in the garden and around the Farmstead, and we also have guests from the other accommodations, including several RVs and tent campers during peak season. We provide just 9 sites in total so there's plenty of space for everyone.

🧰𝗖𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗱 𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻🔨The guests must supervise any children at their party at all times.

You know when you almost don’t want to share a review because you had such a wonderful time, you don’t want others to know how great it was so it will always be available for you? That’s me right now. This place is amazing. Farmer Lisa is fantastic. The barn is great. The camping area is great. Even the restrooms were great (turns out clean Portapotties aren’t terrible places to do your business!). So do book your trip, just don’t book everything up when I want to be there!!! :)

This goat’s name is Cher!!Baby cows that have visiting hours. :)Cows!!! Real life cows!!!Another side of the camping area

We had a lovely stay at the farm. We got to feed the animals and pick produce to eat during our stay. The flowers were beautiful and the views of the sunset and valley were breathtaking.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Oostema Farm!! Lisa and Glenn were such welcoming hosts, and encouraged us to explore the property freely. We became pals with several friendly cows (especially Peter, Paul & Mary), and roamed through their acres of raspberry fields. Lisa provided brochures and information regarding Mount Baker, and provided directions to the US/Canada border monument just 10 minutes away from their property! Glenn allowed us to pick fresh lettuce and radish from their garden boxes, which we used for a fresh salad that evening. The sites are well maintained (green grass, a few trees for shade and hammocks, CLEAN port-a-potty, potable water from a hand/dish washing station, fire pits & firewood available onsite, and beautiful flower beds framing the back wall of the campground area). I wish we had more time to spend here, but we will definitely be back with more family and friends in the future. The other camping residents onsite were extremely friendly as well, and this felt like a wonderful little community. Can't recommend Lisa & Glenn enough!
