Pets:

Our farm practices GAPS (Good Agricultural Practice Standards) and food safety is our highest priority, therefore pets (with the exception of service dogs) are not allowed on our farm. No pets are allowed in our production fields. All guests will be required to wash their hands prior to picking strawberries (once pick-your-own strawberries are available and open).

If your pet rides with you to our farm, please keep them restricted to your vehicle. In addition to GAPS, this is for their safety as we have two Great Pyrenees dogs which are our livestock guardian dogs. They live in the barnyard with our animals and are tasked with protecting our barnyard animals. We do not want them mistaking your pet for a threat to our barnyard animals’ safety.
