We’re an essential service and you may be wondering what that means and what precautions we’re taking. During this time of crisis we’re all vulnerable and we’re all trying to do our part. So we thought we’d take a bit of time to explain some of the changes on our farm to you. Protecting the health and safety of our staff our customers and the general public is of the utmost importance to us.
Our farm does employ temporary foreign workers. Our industry relies on these workers to provide the public with affordable food choices. These workers have been granted an exemption by the Canadian Government on travel restrictions that are currently in place. These workers will need to isolate for a 14 day period upon arrival. We will be following the ‘Quarantine Act’ guidelines that have been set out by The Ministry of Labour & Public Health Safety Authority. Our workers will be in self-quarantined and we will be keeping a daily screening log to monitor their health in accordance to Public Heath recommendations.
Beyond this we have made changes to how we sell our fresh fruits. We now have an online marketplace where you can buy directly from us. We have set up pick up points for where you can get your fresh fruits from us. We will be attending markets where possible. We will be adhering to guidelines set in place by health and safety authorities. Hours of operation may vary compared to normal. Please check with your local market.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our practices during these times please do not hesitate to contact us. We want to assure you all we’re doing all we can to keep everyone safe. Visit our website regularly to find out more details about what’s happening on the farm and where to find us as the season progresses. Please take care of yourselves and stay safe and healthy.
