Welcome to Lynden, WA, where the cows outnumber the people, and the smell of manure is a constant reminder that you're living in the country.

Life in Lynden is like living in a small town straight out of a Hallmark movie, but with more tractors and fewer eligible bachelors. It's a place where everyone knows your name and your business, whether you want them to or not.

One of the best things about living in Lynden is the way the locals embrace the town’s Dutch Heritage. Windmills, tulips, clogs... Oh my! And you can't go wrong with the Lynden Dutch Bakery for a maple bacon donut. Yes, you read that right. Maple. Bacon. Donut. It's probably a heart attack waiting to happen, but totally worth it.

If you're looking for entertainment, head to the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds. You'll find everything from rodeos to demolition derbies, concerts and the occasional tractor pull. It's a great place to take the family, but don't forget to bring a hat and some sunscreen, because it gets hot out there. (And I’m not just talking about the cowboys!)

Speaking of weather, living in Lynden means you may experience all four seasons in one day. One minute it's sunny and warm, and the next it's raining and cold. It's like Mother Nature can't make up her mind.

If you're a fan of cows, you'll feel right at home in Lynden. There are cows everywhere. You'll see them grazing in fields, standing in the middle of the road, and possibly even peeking into your living room window. Don't worry, they're friendly. Just don't try to milk them without permission.

Not a fan of Dairy? How about a berry? In Lynden, there are berry fields as far as the eye can see. Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and more! Come to the annual Farmers Day Parade in July and you’ll witness the annual tradition of creating the world’s longest Strawberry shortcake! (Once we are done creating it, then we get to eat it!)

Driving in Lynden can be a bit of an adventure. You'll need to watch out for tractors, slow-moving farm equipment, and the occasional horse and buggy. It's like playing a game of Frogger, but with more manure.

But besides all the farmland, Lynden is also known for its lovely housing communities, sprawling country properties, an award-winning golf course, quality schools, and its quaint downtown shops.

All in all, Lynden is a lovely, small, and charming town. It may not be for everyone, but for those who love living in the country, eating fresh berries, maple bacon donuts, and seeing lots of cows, it's a slice of heaven.
