Our Current Policies During the COVID-19 Pandemic

To our friends and customers:

This is an uncertain time for all of us. Things have changed dramatically recently,  but the farm keeps on going. In these difficult times it is still necessary for our community to have access to nutrient dense, local, organic produce. It is also important for the community to have access to the therapeutic properties of nature.  We can help with both.

Please know that we take your safety very seriously, just as we take food safety very seriously. We are taking every precaution we can to keep our customers and our produce safe.

  • We have cancelled all gatherings, workshops and volunteer activities until further notice. We will be re-evaluating and following official guidelines and will update our website accordingly.
  • The Farm Staff is following all CDC guidelines about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 including social distancing, not touching our faces, frequent hand washing, and sanitizing all surfaces. 
  • The farm house and all buildings at Holly Hill Farm have been closed to the public. 
  • Office Staff have been asked to work from home and we have suspended all volunteering for the time being.
  • Staff that are feeling ill are not allowed to work or interact with produce in any way 
  • Hand washing is one of our top priorities - staff are required to wash their hands when entering the farmhouse and before dealing with any produce, packaging, or equipment.
  • Farm Staff are the only people handling any vegetables, storage containers, packaging, supplies and harvest equipment
  • All storage containers and harvest equipment have been sanitized before and after each use
  • Gloves are worn and changed during each step of the harvesting and washing process.
  • No vegetables will be sold loose during this time, everything is bagged and placed into a sanitized container.
  • The Farm Stand is closed until further notice - all of our items will be sold online and delivered or picked up on the farm. Please see our website for information. 
  • Because we know that time out-of-doors is healthy for mind and spirit, the farm is still open to visit during daylight hours for families of 4 people or fewer. Per CDC guidelines, we ask any visitors to stay at least 6 feet distance from any other people encountered, with NO exceptions. We also ask that visitors refrain from touching any fence posts, animal enclosure gates, or surfaces that our farmers must touch in order to care for our farm animals. Thank you for helping to keep our farmers safe so they may continue to grow food and care for our animals.

Spring is here and on the farm we are reminded that nature is still moving forward. We are continuing with our crop plan and do not plan to reduce production at this time. For now we are working tirelessly to continue providing our community with the produce that is so necessary.

We thank you for your continued support and understanding as we adjust to a new system of online marketing.
