The Whiting Farm family believes in open spaces and has worked to keep the fields visually expansive so that any visitor to West Tisbury has a sense of space, helping preserve the rural character of the Island. They raise lamb, which can be purchased by appointment. As an artist painting landscapes, Allen shows his work in The Davis House Gallery on the property next to the farm and son Everett raises pigs for his wood-fired meat smoker often seen at local events.
