Pick Your Own & COVID-19
We are so pleased to be able to offer Pick-Your-Own Strawberries during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Let’s work together to make sure that we ALL keep safe and healthy while you’re here…
We can only allow a limited number of people into the field at one time.
During peak times, there may be a wait for admission to the field.
Because everyone is so eager to get outside and do SOMETHING…there will be days when we get ‘picked out’ and have to close the patch early.
You should always call ahead to 613-283-0205 . You’ll hear the most current ‘Berry Update’ BEFORE heading to the farm.
Hand washing is a MUST – upon entry AND exit from the field.
Are you experiencing COVID-19 symptoms? Have you been exposed to someone who may have the virus?
In either case, please DO NOT come to the farm.
Physical Distancing…of course!
Please stay a minimum of 2m apart from our team members and other pickers.
No Sampling in the field this year.
Sorry…it’s that whole ‘Keep your hands away from your face’ thing.
The row you will be assigned to is YOURS. Please stay in it.
Pick EVERY berry that is ripe…no matter the size.
Wasting food – especially right now – is NOT cool.
Children are welcome, and must be CLOSELY supervised by a parent or adult guardian.
Our healthy farm environment includes no smoking or vaping…EVER…COVID-19 or not.
We’ll pick up where you left off. Please move the flag to the place you finished picking.
Anyone not respecting these guidelines will be asked to leave the property
Our AMAZING team members are simply doing as they’ve been instructed – in the interest of everyone’s safety. We thank you in advance for treating them with kindness and respect.
**These guidelines have been developed in conjunction with the Berry Growers of Ontario and are fully supported and enforced by Miller’s Bay Farm.
