Covid-19 Safety

We are acutely aware of the impact Covid-19 has had on all of us. Yet we know that outside activity is important, and good for everyone.

This year, we are carefully looking at how we can open as normally as possible, yet take extra precautions.

What we are doing:

Providing hand sanitizer stations in each area

Sanitizing surfaces much more frequently

Spreading out our activities

Screening employees

What we expect you to do:

Only come if you are healthy. If you have a fever or any symptoms of Covid-19 or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 14 days, please stay home.

Wash your hands at our sanitizing stations.

Stay 6 feet from others not in your group.

About masks.

We are an outside venue. Many days it is extremely hot and humid, and wearing a mask is most uncomfortable.

We encourage wearing a mask if you can’t social distance. We will not provide masks, so please bring your own.


According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 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. Senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.  By visiting our farm, you are on behalf of yourself or any invitees, voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 or any other disease.
