COVID-19 RESPONSE

Visiting us at Hoffman Farms Store will be slightly different this year due to the pandemic circumstances we are experiencing; however, we are confident that our customers can safely visit our farm while practicing social distancing.

Our employees are wearing masks and will be doing all that we can to keep our customers safe during their visit to our family farm.
Our customers are required to wear masks as well.

NO PET POLICY

General Farm Covid Response

Our family has implemented new systems to encourage social distancing as well as to eliminate touch surfaces on our farm. Here are a few of the changes to our General Farm Protocol that we have put into place for this season:
 

  • Our employees are all wearing masks.

  • We sanitize our scales, PIN pads, and countertops in between customers.

  • We are sanitizing wagons in between each use. Families are encouraged to bring their own wagon, cart, or stroller if they wish to use them.

  • We have moved all of our cash registers, bakery case, and other products (candles, produce, kettle corn, etc.) outside into an Open Air Farm Store and have marked out a 6ft distance for our customers while standing in line

  • We have installed a no-touch takeout window from our farm kitchen for milkshakes, shortcakes, and other food items

  • Our picnic tables are all spaced at least 6 ft apart and we sanitize them between each use.

  • If we reach capacity in our fields, we will implement a "one family out/one family in" system.

  • Our playground is closed

  • We are unable to host birthday parties or field trips at this time

  • We are unable to provide a farm wagon (hay ride) to the field as it is impossible to do this efficiently while enforcing social distancing

 

In order to help us keep our farm safe for all, here is what we are asking of our customers:

  • Customers are required to wear masks while visiting our farm.

  • Customers are asked to wash their hands prior to entering our Fields and asked to refrain from eating or drinking while in our fields.

  • While on our farm, we ask that you be mindful of others' personal space and maintain a 6ft perimeter at all times - especially while picking in the field. Parents, please keep a close eye on your children.

  • We will do everything we can to make sure that you have a positive experience on our farm and that our lines move smoothly, however, due to the extra steps our staff must take to ensure everyone's safety, our activity and register lines may be slightly longer. We appreciate your grace and patience as we strive to uphold high cleanliness and safety procedures.
     

We will continue to monitor the news as well as learn from experience as we enter this uncharted territory. These policies are subject to change without notice at any point in time, although we will do our best to keep you as informed as possible via this newsletter as well as our social media channels.


We sincerely appreciate your flexibility and support. We will get through this crazy time as long as we work together to keep each other safe. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please email us at hello@hoffmanfarmsstore.com.
