I am a third generation farm kid. My grandfather immigrated from the Netherlands in the early 1900's and started dairy farming in Southern California. In 1970 my father moved to Lynden to dairy farm (my father Jack Mellema pictured on the trike, grandfather Bert Mellema in the "Mellema Dairy" truck). Like my father and grandfather before me, I have always had a love of farming. Early on, I gained an understanding of the sacrifice and hard work it takes to be a farmer, and also the rewards. Back in 2014, along with my wife, Kim Mellema, and our daughters, I made the decision to plant strawberries on my childhood family farm in Lynden. The rich, fertile soil of the river bottom land produced amazing results! Since then, I have been committed to bringing our high quality strawberries to people in the community. Our farm setting along the river is a beautiful and picturesque countryside setting for u-pick. Bring the kids and let them experience the outdoors in a natural farm environment! We look forward to seeing you!
