We were on our way to Langley and decided to stop at the farm. It was worth the time. Several art galleries, a cheese shop, and beautiful gardens.

Greenbank Farm is a wonderful destination spot and a working farm that benefits the community. It has a welcoming feeling. Art galleries (I think there are three, each different in content), wine shop-let with a tasting bar, cheese shop with an eclectic assortment of sundries, Whidbey Pies Cafe (little hole-in-the-wall with flavorful, fresh food), beautiful plants & flowers, and bird sanctuary area. I bought wine, cheese, chutney, dried grasshoppers (!), lunch, and artwork that included a print of a painting by Rob Schouten, art cards, handmade scarves, jewelry, & hand-carved wooden vases and feathers. I had the most beautiful weather, and it was wonderful to stroll from building to building in the warm sunshine with the delicious breeze that crosses the island. Their Loganberry Festival at the end of July looked like it would be lots of fun, but I had to leave beforehand. For some meditation time, check out the Earth Santuary further south of Greenbank Farm just below Freeland.

We visited during the loganberry festival which was OK. The farm itself was fantastic with beautiful flower beds, rolling fields, and experts to explain them. They sold a variety of items ranging from local art to locally made wine and beer. There was a variety of animals from work horses to a small lake with a variety of Pacific Northwest birds. We were disappointed with the shop that sold cheese and sausage. The types and brands were the same as we routinely buy at supermarkets at about one third of the price. They have a small deli that makes a great Reuben sandwich and a mediocre chowder with "shrimp and scallops" There were two pieces of fish and lots of potatoes in it. Apparently the shrimp and scallops got away.
All in all, the farm is fun to visit, but I wqouldn't do a lot of shopping there.

As one climbs higher through the broad expanse of fields, the views open up and continue to get better. To the west lie Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. To the east lie Saratoga Passage, Camano Island and the Cascade Mountains. At the high point, one can see 360 degrees of sparkling blue water, glistening glaciers, snowfields and forests. Easy trails to walk, and friendly dogs and people along the way make this a favorite place. After a refreshing walk, one can unwind over pie at Whidbey Pies Cafe, or view local art at the several galleries, or taste a cheese sample at the cheese shop, or ...

Greenbank Farm, on Whidbey Island, Washington, is an amazing stop-over not to be missed when traveling up the island. Just a thirty minute, and romantic, ferry ride from Seattle, Whidbey Island is one of America's hidden treasures. And, Greenbank Farm is the jewel in the crown. The Farm boasts (quietly) an amazing gourmet cafe and pie shop at modest prices, a wine shop featuring Washington State vineyards, a cheese shop featuring an abundant variety of local and regional choices and three world class art galleries offering everything from prices affordable for children to paintings, stained glass mosaics and sculptures in every imaginable price range for the serious collector. Walk you dog in the 100+acres of off-leash park, let your kids play on the swings and feed the migrating ducks, buy organic produce grown at the Farm year-round, photograph Bald Eagles, Northern Harriers and dozens of other birds ... or just sit and meditate in the peace of a world removed from stress. Everyone is greeted as a friend, which pulled me into the charm of the place. This is a home away from home where you can feel comfortable and wrapped up as a new friend.
