The current COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an on-going concern, and many farms are wondering what they can and should do. The Department of Ag Resources with the help of Massachusetts Farm Bureau provided the document linked below that is intended to help guide the fruit and vegetable farming community who engage in direct-market sales and support farm visit activities, such as pick-your-own operations.

If you have any concerns or suggestions, please contact the Michael Botelho at MDAR: (508) 985-8751, or UMASS Agricultural Extension Vegetable Program at: or via phone at (413) 545-1051.
