Changes to Promote Health & Safety on the Farm

Changes to Promote Health & Safety on the Farm

Business Not As Usual

As parents,  small business owners and concerned citizens, we are committed to a new business model that will promote the health and safety of our family, employees and guests.

We firmly believe it is our responsibility to treat our guests as family, to make everyone to feel safe, protected and ready for some fun at our farm. First of all, we need our short season to represent the best business practices. Along with important social distancing guidelines.

We're working hard to keep you safe

The short strawberry season comes with high risk, lending 20-30 days to provide our family an opportunity to cover the farm investments that happen the entire year. Due to the economic downturn, this year the risk is higher than ever. As a result, strawberry-crop challenges and added costs for new business practices have put more pressure on the harvest in June.

We love strawberries

We are working hard to balance the needs of our business and our responsibility for the health and safety of our family, employees and community. 

Changes to promote health and safety

On April 9th, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection expanded the Safer at Work Order guidelines. Certainly Mayberry Farms plans to adopt for them for the 2020 Strawberry Season.

Therefore, we have quickly implemented these changes and invested in new resources to build upon these principles.

Above all, we sincerely appreciate the support and understanding of our guests during this unprecedented time. As a result, we have to make a lot of adjustments to the traditional packaging and experience at Mayberry Farms. Our adaptations will best align with our mission to provide high quality berries that are value-priced and conveniently local.
