Logging, Farming & Quarrying
on Lummi Island

Industry by necessity. Clearing the land created a new logging industry simply by the nature of necessity. Lummi Island farmers needed to clear their land and fishermen needed the wood for traps and constructing the canneries to accomodate larger shipments to the mainland.

Lummi Island population continued to grow and farms produced potatoes, fruit, hay, sheep, beef and milk. The first produce exported to the mainland is said to have been taken by canoe.

The canneries expanded as fruit farming took off, and brought more business to the island.

Next was the growth of poultry and dairy farms. It was these farms that successfully brought Lummi Island through the depression years with their award winning produce going to market on the mainland.

When Bellingham was building their breakwater, a quarry was set up on the island to supply the rock required. The quarry closed in 1934 but reopened in 1964 and continues today, serving many areas of the Pacific Northwest.

During the war years the island population and industry declined. After the war new residents came to the island, and although smaller, the logging industry renewed business and the farms returned.
