Whittier Farms Inc. is located in the historic and picturesque town of Sutton, Massachusetts. The farm is presently owned and operated by the fourth and fifth generation of the Whittier Family. The farm is situated on approximately 500 acres of beautiful farmland. The farm consists of two locations which oversee each other from the tops of two hills with rolling farm fields nestled between them, depicting a true New England countryside. In 2010, Whittier Farms has entered into the Agricultural Preservation Restriction Program which means the land must always be used for farming and not be developed for housing or businesses.
Whittier Farms is a dairy farm with a herd size of 300 Registered Holsteins. Whittier Farms is recognized throughout the world for establishing high standards for genetic science resulting in the breeding of top Holstein cows. The farm currently ships about 8,000 pounds of milk per day to Agrimark, a Cabot dairy cooperative.
Whittier Farms operates year round with a retail farm store carrying many products from our farm and other local farms as well as products grown in neighboring New England states. The retail store offers dairy products, as well as our own seasonal fruits and vegetables grown on the farm, soups and chowders, chicken and turkey pot pies, ice cream, frozen seafood dinners, local bakery breads, and our home-made pies and baked goods.
Some of the crops include sweet corn, blueberries, broccoli, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, beans, summer and winter squashes, additional crops are added each year. Support is provided to local homeowner farmers by selling vegetable and flower plants, composted cow manure, screened loam, and bark mulch; with delivery on the manure, mulches and loam available to the customers. During the winter months, snow plowing and sanding services are offered. The retail store is still open during the winter months, seven days a week.
