The farm is a good size, and has all of the typical farm stuff. The playground, the animals, the corn maze, the pumpkin cannon, the tractor ride, the sand pit, the animatronic chickens, and of course pick your own stuff. They also have a mining setup where you can sift for gold in the back of the farm that my... More

Nice farm with lots of fresh picking for the whole family, from veggies to berries. Really nice kids fun area. However, in the last few years it's become very expensive. Even the pick your own berries or veggies are expensive. I picked strawberries this year and it would have been cheaper to buy them from the supermarket. Be prepared to... More

If you want to make a day of it, have young kids and can make full use of the facilities then go at it. The only thing that seemed free was parking. It's relative closeness to Toronto gives city folks the feel like they are going to a real farm. However, I prefer a nice drive north to real (less... More

We like to go to the kid area to play. It's very commercialized but still fun for kids. The price point is a little expensive.

Although it is a huge and beautiful far be prepared to part with a good chunk of your money. They charge for everything including the privilege of using their playground as well as an admissions fee which does not include your berries. You cannot bring in outside food to have a family picnic.

I have been going to Whittamore's to pick strawberries for years. Unfortunately, today I got caught in a thunderstorm and was only able to pick enough berries for one batch of jam. I am always impressed by the quality of the berries and the friendliness and organization of the staff. I was horrified by the bathroom today though. It is... More

I've driven by this plenty of times and never went in, until that one day last month. We've been to plenty of farms around Ontario just for somewhere to take the young kids to (2 & 4), and when we went to Whittamore's i was really surprised at all the activities it has to offer. Granted, it is a bigger... More

Myself and 8 of my twenty-something year old friends spent the morning at Whittamore's Farm on the perfect summer day. Honestly, it was an absolute amazing time. It took us back to our childhood and made us realize, you're never too old for a field trip! You absolutely must see the Amazing Singing Chicken Show every half-hour. We learned that... More

There's plenty to do, and some of it's pretty cool, and to their credit, they continue to build onto the place, with the next addition (some kind of pillow jumping thing if I remember correctly) being ready at the end of the month. There are animals, an animal area, singing chicken show, wagon rides (three times a day), slides, play... More

We came here to see what they offer. There was some produce (granted, it's early in the season for a lot of locally grown), not cheap/special/organic. Toys and candy for purchase. Sugary areas are easy to identify by kids having tantrums in front of them (I'm absolutely a kid person, just can't stand parents who just "parent" through buying things... More
