Guidelines for U-Pick Changes due to COVID-19

April 29, 2020
Many growers who allow customers to come and pick their own vegetables and fruits have been concerned about how that will work in this time of social distancing and closed businesses. At this time, the state has not prohibited U-Pick or on-farm sales. Cornell has just released a document outlining best practices and ideas for growers who choose to allow the public on their farms. Read the Best Management Practices for U-Pick Farms During the COVID-19 Pandemic.
