Staying safe when picking your own fruits and vegetables:

  • Do not allow children to stray from the group. Keeping your whole group together keeps your family as well as others, safe.

  • Find a good spot and pick everything there. Try to limit moving around the field too much. If you see a spot with a lot of ripe berries, pick them all. This will help prevent multiple people touching the same plants. If you need help, find an employee - they usually know the best places to pick.

  • Remember, you are handling food. Act as you would in the supermarket, do not touch what you don’t intend to buy, and don’t eat in the fields. 

  • Coming during the week on off times (before noon) will help ensure getting into the fields quickly.

  • Large Purses, backpacks, coolers, or any other large bags will no longer be permitted in the orchard.

  • Golf cart transportation will not be available. 

  • Bathrooms and hand washing stations will be available. It is always best to use the bathroom before you come. 

  • As always, pets are not allowed on the farm. In compliance with the Food Safety Modernization ACT (FSMA), no pets of any kind (with the exception of service animals protected by the ADA) will be allowed on the property. Emotional support animals are not considered a service animal and will not be allowed on the property.
