COVID-19 FAQs

2020 Summer Operations

Health and well-being is of the utmost importance to us. In addition to the strict hygiene rules we already have in place for personal and health code reasons, we have taken extra precaution with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our staff wear gloves and masks & practice social distancing, and will continue to do so while interacting with the community at our farmstand and CSA tents. We have also limited how many hands interact with the produce.

In addition, we will require customers to:

  • Practice social distancing while at the farm
  • Wear masks while interacting with each other, and with the staff

CDC and Commonwealth of Massachusetts regulations and guidelines for public safety will be implemented. Click on the categories below for more details on how we have modified procedures during the pandemic:
