As many of you may know that last Friday Vermont's governor announced that greenhouses and outdoor garden centers are allowed to open to the public this season (per some restrictions). We're delighted to have the opportunity to share the colors and smells of our greenhouses with our community, as well as to put a face to all of the wonderful people who have taken the time to place orders and connect with us virtually. Through so many of our phone conversations and email exchanges it has become apparent that a stroll through the greenhouse is a cathartic and gratifying annual tradition, and something that our community was disheartened about missing. In order for our business to open during Vermont's State of Emergency, and to ensure the safety of our employees and customers, we must comply to all of Phil Scott's guidelines:
No more than 10 people (customers and employees) at one time in our retail spaces
Customers must schedule and stage visits to enter the greenhouses or pick-up orders
Customers must wait to enter the farm stand or greenhouses until they are cleared to avoid congregation
Customers must adhere to physical distancing of at least 6', face coverings, and sanitizing hands before shopping
To guarantee that people who visit our greenhouses are treated as safely as possible, all employees at Honey Field must also go through a training session developed by VOSHA and the Vermont Department of Health that details safety standard operating procedures.
