Barrie Hill Farms

Pick your Own

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. Open again May 2021
All guests MUST follow our COVID-19 Safety Policies.
Think they’re too strict? If so, please visit us again when this pandemic is over.
I owe a duty of care to my family, my employees and my customers. I will remain overly cautious to protect them.

Here’s how PYO will operate, in order to comply with safe operating guidelines provided by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the Ontario Ministry of Health and numerous Health Units across the province.  

No reservations required.

We require everyone entering the picking fields wear a mask at all times. Wearing of gloves is NOT permitted.

If you are not comfortable without your gloves, or you are not comfortable wearing a mask, then you’re welcome to order on-line for curbside pickup, or else try our new drive-thru.

All farm staff will be wearing masks.

Approach the PYO Entrance Hut where you will need to read or be asked to complete our Covid-19 Self Declaration Assessment.

If your answers are all “No” to the Self Declaration Assessment questions, then you will then sanitize your hands before entering the field. Hand sanitizer will be provided.

We will provide clean unused baskets for picking. Currently, you CANNOT bring your own containers.

Crops will be sold by basket and not by weight, in attempt to reduce lines and points of contact.

Pay before entry. No cash. Debit or credit card payment only.

We ask that pickers come in groups of 5 or less and from the same household. This will allow more families the opportunity to enter the fields during this time of social distancing.

Maximum 2 children aged 12 and under per adult.

SANITIZED WAGON RIDES TO ALL FIELDS

Load sanitized wagon, while maintaining social distance. Pumpkin field is approximately a 10 minute wagon ride each way. 

All guests must sanitize their hands before picking. Sanitizer is provided.

Pick your pumpkins. SOCIAL DISTANCE MUST BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES. 

Persons not respecting our policies may be asked to leave. No refund will be issued.

Return via sanitized wagon, get in your vehicle and head on out to enjoy a Happy Halloween! And stay well. And thanks for helping us all stay well – our farm family and your family too!

Open rain or shine! However, the fields are closed in the event of lightning or severe weather in the area.
