Opening day is June 27th.
Its a new world in 2020, so we have to adjust to keep all of our families safe. We know so many of you have been picking at our farm for decades and we can’t thank you enough for all your support over the years. This year we are implementing changes in line with best management practices for U-Pick farms during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
******PLEASE NOTE: We will only be open from 8am to 1:30 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.******
We will provide sanitized or new buckets to take home. You will not have to weigh your fruit or touch a bucket that someone else has used. This does mean you will pre-pay for your fruit by the bucket size (need to specify the sizes so we can tell what volume is the minimum for the bulk pickers. You may still bring your own bucket from home, but you will also be required to pre-pay based on the size, so please bring something with a known volume marked on the container.
We will provide a touch-less hand washing station – sanitizer at check in.
You will be required to social distance. We have a big space, so this is easy. If you see someone not in your party, go a different way.
We ask that you bring your own water bottles.
No pets will be allowed.
Group size is limited to 10. We will mark the rows as unidirectional and ask that all pickers maintain the appropriate 6-feet of social distance. Wearing masks is encouraged.
The back half of the farm will be closed for those who might be immune-compromised, so please do not cross into the marked off section.
If you are not feeling well, show any symptoms (coughing, sneezing), or have come in contact with someone who has had COVID, we will ask you to leave.
We will only be open from 8am to 1:30 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. This is needed for several reasons. First this gives time in between pickers to allow the sun and the elements to do its work and keep us all safe. Second, it allows a gloved and masked staff person to hand you a sanitized bucket.
For those of you who are immune compromised or over 60 we will offer private picking by appointment in a special reserved section on the farm. Please email us at email@example.com
