The New Boston Historical Society's web site tells about Whipple's New Boston farm that supplied food to his Boston hotels. Worth noting:
- J.R. (Reed) Whipple supplied food to the Parker House, Young's Hotel and Hotel Touraine from his 2500-acre Valley View Farm in New Boston, NH
- In 1893 he build a railroad line between New Boston and Boston's Parker Station to facilitate food shipments.
- The farm's "piggery," "hennery," and creamery employed 90 workers. Food was shipped to Boston daily. Leftover food was sent back to New Boston to feed the pigs and chickens.
(Note: The New Boston Historical Society is located in the former Whipple Free Library, which recently moved into its new building.)
