• We will have pick-your-own again this year as there is plenty of room for social distancing around the trees
  • Construction of a new farm market building is underway to provide more social distancing space for guests and school field trips. “The additional space will allow us to better serve our guests for years to come with pre-picked apples, cider, apple butter and apple sauce made from our apples, local honey and baked goods,” said Lugene Miller.  The Covid-19 shutdown this spring slowed the start of construction, but we are hopeful the new building will be ready in September.

  • Employees will wear masks when greeting customers and gloves will be worn when handling money
  • Cleaning and disinfection practices will be expanded, including frequent employee hand washing, hand sanitizer for guests, and frequent disinfecting of surfaces, including bins, tables and doorknobs
  • Non-porous plastic table cover has been installed in the schoolhouse
  • Contactless card readers have been purchased; use of cash will be discouraged
  • Tents will be set up to greet customers and provide for outdoor “shopping” & checkout
  • Guests who choose to enter the schoolhouse will be required to wear masks
    • The number of people allowed in the schoolhouse at one time will be limited
  • Customers will be asked to leave the orchard if they are displaying symptoms of Covid-19 or have come in contact with someone with symptoms
  • Associates will not work if they have symptoms or were exposed
  • Signage to encourage six-foot social distancing will be in-place
  • In accordance with Illinois Farmers’ Market Association guidelines, customers will not handle fruit.
