COVID-19


We have made some adjustments to our operations this season to comply with State and Local Health Department guidelines and most importantly to keep our customers and staff safe. We understand that some of these adjustments aren’t ideal, however, we’re asking for your understanding and continued support this season!
We are currently able to open most of our Farmyard attractions with reduced capacity and additional cleaning practices. At this time we’re unable to operate our tractor drawn wagon ride because there’s no way to properly social distance different households. We’ve also had to substitute our very popular “Corn pit” just for this season as it’s not conducive to maintaining social distancing and sanitizing practices.

We want to let you know what we’re doing to reduce the risk of COVID-19 and what you can do to help! 

  • Installation of multiple hand sanitizer stations around the farm
  • Installation of touch-less payment system at each point of sale
  • Well spaced out seating under the shelter and outdoors
  • Installation of signage to remind our guests to please social distance
  • Strict employee hand washing practices
  • Installation of touch free paper towel dispensers in restrooms 
  • Installation of plexiglass barriers at points of sale
  • Directional arrows to maintain safe social distancing in our u-pick tree rows
  • A drive-thru market for Honeycrisp apples

Maintaining a clean facility has always been a priority, we have added additional cleaning/sanitizing practices including:

  • Frequent sanitation at all points of sale
  • Sanitizing high touch points on our activities: including pedal cart steering wheels and zip line handle bars after each use.
  • More frequent cleaning of restrooms: including sanitizing handles, locks, and faucets
  • Continuing our strict cleaning and food handling procedures in our kitchen

We are asking our customers to help keep us COVID compliant so that we can continue to be open to serve you:

  • We are limited to groups of 10 per table- please don’t move tables and create a larger gathering
  • Please don’t congregate in high traffic areas
  • Please observe capacity limits at our indoor facilities
  • Abide by the state mask mandate- wear a mask indoors, and outdoors if you’re unable to maintain 6’ from persons outside of your household.
  • Follow our staff’s instructions and observe signage
  • If you or anyone in your family is exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home
  • Please be patient with our staff as we learn how to operate under these new guidelines

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By visiting our farm you assume the risks associated with exposure to COVID-19.
