Covid-19 Pick Your Own Safety Measures
*Effective July 15th, Masks/Face Covering are required in the store, on the frequently sanitized wagons and when you cannot stay 2 meters away from others (as per the Renfrew County and District Health Unit Covid-19 directive). Disposable masks are available for a $1 donation.
*Please stay at home if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, have come into contact with anyone infected or have travelled outside of the country.
*No reservations required.
*Due to spacing restrictions, there is a limit of 2 children per 1 adult in the picking area. All children must be directly supervised and stay with the adult in their row. Play Park and Animal Viewing Area are currently closed.
*Stay in your assigned picking area. The field host will safely move you to another picking area if needed.
*Please follow the new entrance and exit areas into the store and picking area. The Blueberry check-in area is now located on the ranch deck. You may pick into your own baskets or purchase a container (1.5l or 3l) to pick into. PYO blueberries will be sold by weight. There is a separate Blueberry check-out area that you will be directed to. Please follow all directional signs.
*Hand sanitizer stations will be located at the entrance and at the exit of the store, at the wagon pick up area and in the picking area. Please use it.
*Public washroom facilities are open.
*For your safety, please wait until after you wash your blueberries to eat them — no eating in the field.
*No outside picnics or large group gatherings (max ten people) in the outdoor seating area. Food can be purchased on-site.
* Let’s keep everyone safe together by following the new Covid-19 safety measures in place.
High-bush blueberries are picked by hand and not with a rake. You are welcome to bring your own containers to pick into or use our picking buckets with net bags. Pick-your-own blueberries are sold by weight. For those who do not want to bend over, you will be happy to know that some of our bushes are 6 feet high. Your blueberry picking adventure may include a short wagon ride to the best picking spot for that day. Your friendly and knowledgeable field hosts will show you how and where to pick. Farmer Hugli has a designated picking plan to ensure that all varieties get picked at their peak.
