So much has happened, and so much has changed, since we finished our picking season in 2019! We have been reluctant to update our website, as at this time, we are not really sure what this season will look like. Thank you for your patience.
Our first crop of the year is sweet cherries, and we are truly hoping to be open for picking. Cherries should be ripe, starting around the second week of July. We are closed until then, as there is nothing to pick before then.
If we are able to open for picking, it will be a much different experience than 'normal'. We are a family farm, and the health and safety of our family, employees, visitors and customers are our number one priority.
We are committed to complying with all protocols and guidelines established by the public health and governmental authorities. We are implementing rigorous sanitization procedures for washrooms, tables, counters and other high-touch surfaces. Hand sanitizers will be available at designated locations on our property.
In an attempt to minimize transactions and contact, we will not be selling/weighing fruit by the pound. Visitors to our farm will know that we have a minimum purchase for everyone entering the orchard. This year, we will provide baskets that, when full, cover the minimum purchase. Each person entering will be required to pick a minimum of $5-6, and will be given a basket that will hold that exact amount (at least two pounds of cherries). Once a person's basket is full, they will be kindly asked to exit the orchard. If our tractors are running, families or individuals will be seated at least six feet apart, or in areas separated by plexiglass. Trains would be sanitized after each round, resulting in fewer available shuttles to the picking areas.
Once open, we will be asking everyone to help keep our property safe; do not enter if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid. We will require a 2 metres distance to be maintained among all individuals, or families, on our property, and ask that all social distancing arrows be respected. At this time, we do not know if open areas will be available for family picnics,
We will be relying on everyone's cooperation, as together, we will ensure the well-being of all. Thank you for your trust in us, and for your understanding and collaboration.
We will update our website as we get closer to our picking season. Until then, please stay safe, please stay healthy. We look forward to seeing you soon!
