COVID-19 PROCEDURES

If you've picked strawberries here in years past, you are probably familiar with how the process has usually worked. Because we are taking COVID-19 very seriously, and to keep everyone as safe as possible, we will be doing some things differently this year.

  1. Please practice social distancing throughout your visit to the farm, once you've parked at the farm, as you make your way towards the checkin area and then out into the field to your assigned picking zone. We will have three parking areas. There will be one along the drive way at the end of the strawberry field (this will be credit card only.) The second parking area is in front of the store and parking on the grass is allowed. The third parking is up by the house on the left side of the drive by the blackberry patch. 

  2. Before you enter the strawberry field you should use one of our handing washing stations to wash your hands with soap and water.

  3. To limit the numbers of interactions we'll be needing to walk further so we can have one way traffic in the field during the busiest times. If walking is an issue, this is something you should consider. We will not be transporting people to and from the field as we have in the past. But we will assist you with your berries if you need help.

  4. For payments we recommend and prefer the use of Credit Cards, Apple Pay or Android Pay.

  5. Our hours (once we open the PYO patch) will be 8 a.m. till 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. We are closed on Sunday. We do ask that you check our Facebook page before visiting since there may be times we'll need to close for weather, or if we get picked out. We do encourage you to visit on weekdays, if you can, to help spread out the number of people visiting at one time. Check out "How PYO Works" for the usual lowest number of people at the farm.

  6. One of the perks of PYO strawberries is tasting a few berries in the field as you pick. Because of the threat of spreading COVID-19 we ask that you refrain from tasting berries in the field.

  7. If you are sick please do not come out to the farm. If we believe you are sick once you arrive at the farm we will have to ask you to leave.

  8. We love having families come out to the farm, but we do ask that you please keep an especially close eye on your children and keep them with you. We ask that you don't linger any longer than needed so others can pick and remember to practice social distancing.

  9. We will be wearing gloves at our check-in station and sanitizing the equipment. 

That's a lot to think about, so thanks for reading through it and helping us do our best to be as responsible as possible during this time! The key to staying healthy is everyone taking personal responsibility. If we can all have a little patience, we're pretty sure this can work fairly well.
