We have been working hard to come up with a plan that would allow use to welcome visitors back to the farm. As most of you know we opened the Farmers’ Market area in early June and it has been a great success. We have taken what we learned from that opening and applied it to our farm site setup. Below is a short review of what we are doing to re-open the farm.
It has been a long time coming but we are very excited to be opening the farm again to visitors. For now we will have the farm site open Sundays and Wednesday from 9:30 to 3:00. Although we have lots of space and EVERYTHING is outdoors, we have taken a number of steps to make sure that both our guest and our family are as safe as possible. After all our family lives here and we are sharing our farm with you. The farm visit will be a little different but still extremely enjoyable. All the animals will be available visit, the play areas are open and have been spread out for distancing and there are a dozen picnic tables around the farm that are open for your use. The biggest change is that we are running three different time slots each day 9:30 to 11:00, 11:00 to 1:00 and 1:30 to 3:00 which will allow us time to clean and reset play areas. You will need to purchase tickets on line for each session, so we can manage the number of visitors and avoid line ups and long wait times at the entrance. You can visit our website www.thelogfarm.com and find the link to purchase tickets to the different time slots.
The farm will continue to host our Barrhaven Farmers’ Market every Saturday from 9:00 to 2:00 with lots of open space, free parking and of course no admission. There is a controlled entry point and a limited number of people but if you have to wait it is never more than a couple of minutes.
As a small family business we greatly appreciate the support that both the media and customers have shown towards our farm, with the success of our Farmers’ Market and we hope that everyone will enjoy their visit with all their favorite Barnyard friends.
