Our COVID Safety Plan & Our Commitments to Our Guests
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 15+ 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.
Throughout the past challenging years of COVID-19, we took our safety practices even further through the implementation of more in-depth sanitation practices throughout our farm, advanced hygiene education and training for our staff, maintained a close connection with our local health department and stayed informed and followed up-to-date state and federal guidelines.
