WELCH FARMS LLC PICK-YOUR-OWN PROCEDURES WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING

On May 14, 2021 the release from Gov. DeWine states, “Ohio will be amending our remaining health orders to comply with the new CDC guidance, which says that those who have been vaccinated no longer need to wear masks, while those who have not been vaccinated should still wear a mask and socially distance."  In an effort to ensure the safety of all, we will continue to ask that those who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear masks.  We ask everyone to continue to follow these guidelines:

  • If you have a cough or fever, or are feeling sick DO NOT enter the farm.

  • A safe, 6-foot social distance MUST ALWAYS be maintained and will be required. 2 rows between separate groups while picking.

  • If children are present, they MUST stay within 6 feet of an adult at all times.

  • Handwashing stations, sanitizer & portable restrooms will be provided.

  • Brand new, single use, containers will be provided for our customers.

  • All items picked must be taken by the customer and purchased.

  • Produce MUST NOT be touched or picked unless purchasing.

  • NO EATING of fruit while in the field.

  • The FDA recommends washing all produce prior to consumption.

  • NO DOGS (except service dogs) will be allowed on the farm at this time. 

  • We may limit PYO admissions at any time to maintain a safe social distance experience.

While we appreciate that there are many challenges and opinions on this situation, we ask that everyone do their part to help maintain the safety and health of all on our farm. ​
