Strawberry and fruit picking looks a lot different this year but the farms are working with social distancing procedures in an effort for your family to enjoy their crop! A few farms sadly have closed while others are open for curbside and a few are offering reservation slots for you to come physically pick you own! Some things to keep in mind when planning to head to the farm: If you’re sick don’t go and pick! Kids should stay with adults at all times. Wash your hands before and after picking. Plan to pick with your own family this year instead of making it a group activity. Don’t plan on staying for picnics and running around. Keep a 6 foot distance from others.
