Canton Chamber Dual Membership

We have partnered with the Canton Chamber of Commerce to offer a Dual Membership discount for Canton Chamber members that reside in Farmington (that do not have a physical location in both communities) a $50 discount that will then be applied towards Farmington Chamber dues for this year.  If you are not a current member of the Canton Chamber and would like to be, please contact Carla Bobell at asking about the Dual Membership Promotion with the Farmington Chamber of Commerce.

Once your membership has been paid, we will forward a decal (cling) to you for display showing your support.  For questions or expressing interest, you may contact any officer, director, or committee member. You may also contact the Farmington Chamber by calling 309-245-4373, asking for Kathy Williamson. We are excited to serve you and promote our town.

Remember “It takes a village” and “many hands make for light work”. Looking forward to you joining us!

After I moved here as a young girl, I remained in Farmington because I found all the things that were important to me. My family grew to four generations. They were raised and educated here, I served my church and community here and made many friends. As different needs arrived, the community and its people have always been here to help, support, and encourage.


Farmington has always been my home, but the essence of what Farmington is can best be seen in the way the community takes care of one another. My son had lived in Chicago since he was 18. At the age of 32, he was diagnosed with MS and had to move back to our hometown that as a young man he had been so set on escaping. Since his return, the community has rallied around Brad, taking him to appointments and helping him with heavy lifting, being there when I could not, and just being supportive of a young man with a disability. The food bank has dropped groceries by for him and everyone has made sure he has everything he needs to remain healthy. This is a community that cares for its fellowman and that instills hope in all of us who have been jaded by city life. Knowing that there are helping hands ready to assist in a time of need makes Farmington a community that lives by the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.”

I chose to move to Farmington because of the safe environment in which to raise my family. I love the sense of family and community that this town has. We have wonderful restaurants, a beautiful and safe downtown for shopping, and many wonderful churches in our city. I love the family-friendly activities throughout the year and am so thankful that we chose Farmington.

I chose Farmington because it is a lovely community full of caring people!

I love knowing most people, love the fact my family can feel safe on a walk here or at a park, I love the fact that in case of an emergency we come together as if we were a giant family.
