    Great place to take kids! Lots to do and lots to see! Kids will love all the animals and enjoy all the nuance of a playground. And all the staff we came across were very friendly and very helpful. And all the fresh veggies and pies oh so much goodness!

    I just love this farm ... been going for 25 + years ... and every time I go there is always something new and improved ... it's a place that is not far from the city and feel like in the country :) specially around Toronto. . . THANK YOU for all the great work you did through out the years ... very appreciated ... Enjoy your retirement with pride ... I know being a farmer is very hard work. ... Thank you ❤ 😊

    I love this farm! I've been coming here since I was a child, and this farm is so full of joy. Fantastic produce, fresh and real. I'm going to miss the farm when it's through with the season...

    It is really a fun place. My family enjoy Whittamore's Farm every summer. Too sad that 2017 is the last year open to public. We will miss it.

    Nice to visit a real farm with more. You can pick-your-own crops (depending on the season). The pies made fresh on site are delicious.
