Well-being of Guests and Farmers

It is not business as usual at the farm this year. Many measures have been added to align with public health guidelines as outlined by the Government of Canada, Province of Ontario and Region of Durham.

These include mandatory masks/face coverings at all times; promoting physical distancing by re-designing several access points and establishing timed visits; additional hand sanitizing stations; cleaning and sanitation of high-touch areas through a maintained schedule; contactless payment options; one-directional flow in key areas; and mandatory self-screening checklist.

The health of our farm family is being carefully assessed daily, hand washing and sanitizing is occurring on a scheduled basis, and both masks and face shields are being worn as appropriate throughout the season. We thank you kindly for your patience and understanding as we continue updating the above as required.
