Our COVID Safety
Plan & Our
We would like all of our guests to know that we take the safety of our staff, customers and families very seriously. For the past 10+ years, we have taken great pride in creating and implementing an "Employee and Guests Safety/Crisis Plan" in order to ensure the safety of everyone that visits and works on our farm. Our safety plan is also reviewed on a yearly basis by our local health department, emergency management authorities - police, fire, ambulance - and the Emergency Management Coordinator of Lee County. We strive to always continue to be a leader in practices of farm safety, sanitation and hygiene with all of our staff, as well as our guests.
During this particularly trying time of COVID-19, we are taking our safety practices several steps further through the implementation of more in-depth sanitation practices throughout our farm, advanced hygiene education and training for our staff, maintaining a close connection with our local health department and staying informed and following up-to-date state and federal guidelines.
