Farewell and thanks form Whittamore's Farm


A Special Thanks & Goodbye
to all of our Valued Customers, Suppliers and  incredible Staff over the past 60 years

As the frost settles on the pumpkins, and the brilliance of October fades into the grey of November, we have closed our Farm Gates to the public for the very last time. It was a bittersweet moment shared with our Managers, and a few of our Staff.  The feeling that overtook us was GRATITIDE.  We have been so privileged to have worked off of this land and have been thrilled to share it with so many amazing people from all walks of life over the past 60 plus years. We are grateful for everyone who helped us along on our journey.
To our Patrons, both returning and new - we appreciate all the customers who have visited the Farm for their first time this past Season just as much as those who have made their visits to Whittamore’s a family tradition and those who make our Farm Shop and or Play Area a weekly stop – The stories and memories you have shared with us have touched us in ways you will never know.  You are all a part of the yarn that has woven the fabric of our business and for that we sincerely thank each and every one of you.
To our Suppliers and Industry Partners that have helped us along the way, it has been our sincere pleasure to have worked with all of you. Ontario businesses need to support each other, and we have been proud to have supported local, small business in Ontario as much as possible.  The exceptional products that our suppliers have provided to us, or created especially for us have helped make us the unique destination we have become over the years. Thank you all.
To our amazing, diverse and dedicated Staff – there are no words to describe how grateful we are.  We have been fortunate to have had hundreds of people of all ages, from student to senior, help us on this remarkable adventure. We simply could not have accomplished what we have without each and every one of you.  No matter how small or big your role, you were paramount to our success over our many, many years in business.  To both past and current employees, we wish you only the very best life has to offer moving forward. You will not be forgotten.
So, Farm Friends, the feeling is GRATITUDE.
Thank you for being a part of who we are, we will never forget those who helped us get to where we are today. 
We are proud to have been “Your Farm in the City”, and we hope we have become “The Farm in All of Your Hearts”. 

Sincerely,
Gilbert and the dearly missed Evelyn Whittamore, Frank & Suzanne Whittamore, Mike & Gayle Whittamore
