2008 Frank & Eleanor Whittemore

Hollis, New Hampshire

Frank & Eleanor Whittemore are the fifth generation to operate Brookdale Fruit Farm, an 1847 dairy operation that evolved into a diversified fruit and vegetable enterprise. With 250 acres of fruit trees and 150 acres of vegetables, they introduced the first “crop saver” computerized sprayer in the state. The Whittemores’ accomplishments include the addition of controlled atmospheric cold storage, a computerized dwarf apple tree planting program, trickle irrigation and pick-your-own produce offerings.

The Whittemores’ hard work, innovative practices and commitment to the successful future of the family farm and the agricultural industry place them in the forefront of the industry’s leadership.
