I am not sure where to begin. We have been coming to this farm for years and have always had a great time. Of course, being concerned about COVID, I was happy to see on the website "we are not crowded, we limit the amount of people and require masks and have strict sanitizing policies". I even purchased my online tickets in advance, as recommended thinking since patrons were limited, tickets may run out. We arrived at 11 to a crowd like I had never seen, with ZERO effort to monitor social distancing. The ONLY part of the day that was monitored was the hayride. They only allowed a limited number of parties on at once. This was literally the only time of the visit I felt safe and secure. We quickly did the hayride, got our pumpkins and left. We never went apple picking, which was one of the major reasons we went. People were all over NOT wearing masks, there was no extra hand sanitizer stations other than by port o johns, and absolutely NO monitoring of social distancing or masking. We attempted to salvage the trip by going in the store but there was ZERO attempt there to control crowds either. Actually, the only thing that was protected were the workers with plexiglass by the registers but all the shoppers were on top of each other. Being a health care professional, this lack of regard for safety was appalling. Sad to say we will not be returning and will be finding a new farm. One that cares more about their customers than making a buck.

A friend and I made an 11am reservation online for a mid-September Sunday. First, the road to get to the farm is backed up like crazy - you wait an extra 10 min + in bumper to bumper traffic just to get close to the farm. Then the parking is mayhem - it takes forever to find a spot and then you have to walk pretty far to get to the farm (not handicap accessible). The cops who are directing the crazy traffic do not wear masks. Secondly, when you get to the farm, there were SO many people that it was hard to understand exactly where we should go. When we found the area to pick up an apple picking tote, we realize that the 11am reservation we made had no purpose. Thirdly, it's just packed. Almost we saw was wearing a mask (not everyone), but hundreds and hundreds of people were there. Fourth, included in our overpriced $25 ticket was a pumpkin! Well, we weren't able to get a pumpkin unless we went on the hayride - the hayride was tiny and they jammed people in there with no social distancing. So, we didn't even get something we paid for since it was such an unsafe environment. I will say that, in general, it's a big and beautiful farm and there were a fair amount of good quality apples and peaches. But during these times, I really would advise looking to go to a smaller/less popular farm that doesn't charge you so much for an unsafe experience.
