The staff at Milky Way Farm in Chester Springs is working diligently to ensure that the pandemic does not disrupt any much-anticipated fall traditions, writes Jaclyn Lee for 6ABC.
To limit capacity, visitors now have to buy tickets in advance. This is something the farm has never done in its more than 30 years of business.
“We think it’s working, knock on wood,” said Milky Way Farm Manager Jane Ferris. “We’ve got people using their masks and keeping socially distant. We’re using milk cans to help denote our spots in line, sort of like the dots on the ground.”
Other precautionary measures include private hayrides, with a 20-person limit.
The farm decided in June to keep the pumpkin patch tradition alive this year, but has reduced the hours for the on-site Chester Springs Creamery from six days a week to weekends only.
“We’ve switched from inside-seating mode to take-out-only mode, so there are red dots spread seven feet apart,” said Carolyn Matthews Eaglehouse, President of Chester Springs Creamery.
