Hello growers:

here are the guidelines posted today. Thanks to the Agency of 
Agriculture, Food and Markets for developing an approach that seems 
reasonable under the circumstances. PYO areas open for harvest are 
limited to 1 person per 200 sq. ft  (equivalent to 218 people per acre). 
Sanitation is required similar to other activities, retail (sales area) 
population capped at 10 people as with other activities, 6-foot 
distancing required, and on-site consumption of food (also crops being 
picked) not allowed. For full details see:

NOFA-VT is planning a webinar on this topic very soon, stay tuned.
