Exceptional service. If you only have time to read one sentence of this testimonial for HL Farmer and Sons of Bradford that is the sentence this family would want you to read. If you have more time…compassionate, dedicated, attentive, patient, responsive. Brian, Brandon, Lynn and team went above and beyond carefully listening and taking the time to understand our needs. They were always available to answer our questions and provide guidance during the planning process - and even more so after. Death of a loved one is an absolute emotional rollercoaster. We are beyond grateful for their support and expertise. HL Farmer and Sons Bradford is truly outstanding - there are no words to thank them enough.

I attended a funeral for the brother of a close friend at the Haverhill Farmer facility on May 3, 2023. We all receive the service of others in the activities of life. When one observes and receives exceptional service, it should not go unacknowledged. The impeccable, professional service provided by the Farmer team was truly exceptional in every way from the moment we arrived, until the burial was completed. Hats off and sincere thanks to you all you at Farmer.

Thank you to the staff at Farmer & Sons Funeral Home for giving my mother a beautiful service from start to finish. Brandon and the rest of the team were professional, caring, sensitive, and supportive during the entire planning process, walking us through each step with the utmost attention to detail and patience, as if we were family. They truly cared about giving us the best and most seamless experience possible and helping us give my mother the proper celebration she deserved. Brandon was very responsive answering every text at any time of the day within minutes and made us feel like his only client. Our family is truly grateful and appreciative for the care we received from Farmers during a very difficult time.

Brian and staff, our family couldn't be any more impressed with the outstanding experience we had during the very difficult time of burying my mother. From Pre-Planning to Mom going to her final resting place every part of the process was handled with the utmost dignity and efficiency. Brian and his staff took the time to answer all our questions/concerns and requests. They scanned our photos and made a beautiful tribute video that was also put on a thumb drive and given to use as keepsake. What I thought was very lovely was that each flower arrangement that had been sent was photographed and given a special thank you card. Everyone involved went so above and beyond and you feel how much everyone cares to make sure that all your wishes and expectations are met. I’d highly recommend Farmer Funeral Homes to all my family and friends after such a wonderful experience in such dark days.

Brian and staff, thank you all so much for all that you’ve done for our family with our mother, Barbara’s funeral service. Also, it was very generous and kind to plant a tree in her memory. Your heartfelt guidance and sincere expression of sympathy to each of us is genuinely appreciated. The extra measures of assistance you and your staff provided for all of us is truly grateful. We’re amazed at your patience with us as we stumbled along, seemingly in a fog, at times. You valued our grief, without judgement, allowed us to express it in our own ways and on our own schedule. Your kindness and professionalism helped us through, and our mother would have been proud. We wish to thank all involved with our mother’s burial. Blessings, The Family of Barbara A. Rowell

I highly recommend the folks at Farmer & Sons Funeral Home in Haverhill, Massachusetts. My dear mother passed away during the July 4th holiday week in the State of Maine. Mom had expressed her wishes many times that she wanted to be buried in her beloved home town of Haverhill, near all of her family. Brian made the process of transporting Mom from Maine to Massachusetts a breeze – no small feat during a holiday week. Farmers guided me every step of the way, and they are extremely professional with respect to every detail large and small. Farmers has handled all of our family’s funerals since I can remember. As difficult as it is to lose a parent, the funeral arrangements were one thing that I did NOT have to worry about. In today’s world of generally subpar service, Farmers is a notable exception, continuing with the same standard of excellence that they have had for generations. Thanks you for everything, Farmers. Best, Joanne Thanos Fryer

Right from our initial phone call we were guided (by Mr. Rob Regan) with professionalism and compassion. We were also given the necessary guidance with tenderness and honesty. The lovely ladies in the office were equally kind and extremely helpful with each and every phone correspondence. During the wake and funeral Brian and the ENTIRE staff were extremely attentive to every detail of the services and the needs/wishes of the family members. Our families have used Farmer and Sons several times over the years and will continue to do so. Once again they have proven themselves in providing our family with excellent service. Thank you, The Family of Brian Plante

Farmer & Sons Thank you for being so kind, patient and professional while planning the services for Barbara Duchemin. You made us feel comfortable and supported in a situation that is often times hard to do. Brian and Lynn were wonderful to work with - both class acts and the services for Barbara were lovely too. Thanks again.

We had funeral services for my mother at the Bradford location. The funeral home was beautiful and the staff was great. Mike was the director that worked us and really helped us through a difficult time. My mother's death was traumatic and unexpected. However Mike and the rest of the team helped to make this hard time easier on my family. They worked with us around our schedules and made the process go quickly, while also working with our pace and had the patience to work with us on many things. I would recommend Farmers and Mike to anyone who needs services.

Brian, Thank you for the excellent manner in which you handled all of my father's arrangements. These include the pre-planning and pre-payment agreement that you and my father created, coordinating the transport of my father’s body from Florida to Massachusetts, and everything that you and your staff did on the day of his funeral and burial. We could not have asked for a more caring and thoughtful handling of my father's passing on his and his family’s behalf. Ben Gruber September 23, 2018

Dear Brian, I know I have said this a few times, but feel it is important to say in writing – thank you again for all that you and everyone at Farmer & Sons has done for my father, mother and entire family. Every step in the process you were there to explain and help us understand, and your calming assurances were paramount to our getting through this past week. I know the pre-planning by my parents helped make things easier, but you and your entire staff’s efforts helped comfort and guide us through what has been an extremely emotional and sad time in our lives. Please know that you helped us celebrate rather than mourn my father’s life. We are fortunate to have had your services; the professionalism, respect, concern and attention to detail were outstanding and so appreciated by all of us. Sincerely, Mike Atwood

My father's recent passing left our family feeling shocked and lost. The staff at Farmer and Sons, especially Brian, was an endless source of help and compassion. Having guidance and support made the arrangement process easier, and even the smallest details were covered. In what was an incredibly difficult time, it was a great relief to be so well cared for. My family has used Farmer and Sons for generations, and with good reason. We have always been treated with respect, compassion and kindness. Their professionalism is beyond compare.

The staff at Farmer & Sons is exceptional. Rob Regan was our funeral director. I cannot thank him enough for everything he helped me and my family through. He answered every question we had with respect and compassion. If he didn't have the answer, he got it for us. He made us laugh and tried to keep things light as he knew we had heavy hearts at this time, with my husband’s passing. He made us laugh as we remembered the little details about my husband’s past but he did so with respect. All the members of the staff were helpful and compassionate. They made you feel comfortable and did not pressure you into making purchases you did not need or want. The presentation of my husband was beautiful and tastefully done. They allowed us to put several items with him to appease our young daughter. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to help us through this sad time. I would highly recommend them to anyone who was in need of funeral services.

Our experience with Farmers was above and beyond anything that we could have envisioned. Rob and Mike took such good care of us during this very difficult time with care and respect before, during and after the process of our Mother's service. Rob guided us through the entire schedule of events with such professionalism and good nature, that it made an extremely difficult time so much easier. They were there every step of the way and on the day of the service everything was absolutely perfect. They did a terrific job with every detail without flaw. At the end of the day they provided a service to our family, but we left them feeling nothing but gratitude for the first class sendoff they gave our beloved Mother. We will not forget their professionalism and steady hand that we needed during that time. Sincere thanks goes out to Rob, Mike and the entire Farmers team for a job very well done.

Words cannot adequately express our gratitude for the care and concern we received from the staff of Farmers and Sons upon the death of my mother. From the moment I called Brian to inform him of her passing, I knew she was in good hands and would be well cared for. Brian was so kind and compassionate not only with me, but my father and my entire family. He listened attentively and was able to direct us when we were unsure of which direction to go. We were able to provide my mother with an appropriate, beautiful and meaningful wake and funeral. Knowing that Brian, Rob & the rest of the staff were walking with us during this difficult time was reassuring and comforting. Even after everything was over, Brian, Rob and the staff continue to support us.
