The roots of Farquhar’s Dairy stretch back to 1877 when Thomas Farquhar and his family moved to a farm on Manitoulin Island. Before becoming a dairy farmer in 1933, Thomas worked as a miner in British Columbia and real estate in Ontario.
Since the days when Thomas began to sell milk from the family farm, Farquhar’s has grown and now employs over 50 people serving the communities in Northern Ontario. The company based in Espanola, Ontario, is now owned by the third and fourth generations of the Farquhar family and produces its own branded milk, butter, and ice creams.
