Extension Offers Guidelines for Agritourism Operations in Maryland
University of Maryland Extension has posted information and resources for agritourism operators on how COVID-19 protocols will affect pick-your-own operations. Pick-your-own and other food marketing operations are deemed as essential businesses and can be open, although agri-tainment enterprises should not be open at this time. Communication of COVID-19 protocols to farm customers and employees is key, says the post. The post offers examples of communications from u-pick farms and also provides links to recommended practices and sources of further information.
