Spring at Braehead

COVID-19 response

Braehead Farm is working closely with Fredericksburg officials in regards to COVID-19. We will remain open, while abiding by Fredericksburg Emergency Order #1 that is in effect through March 31, 2020. The changes put in place at Braehead Farm are as follows:

*Our farm WILL remain open-daily from 9am-6pm. There are no INDOOR gatherings allowed by Emergency Order #1 of more than 10 people (not counting staff) through March 31, 2020. All parties and events have been cancelled in our rental barns through March 31, 2020. At this time we will be booking barn rentals for after March 31, 2020, unless the order changes.

*Our Lunch Kitchen will close through March 31. Outside food is always allowed.

*Staff has always had a two page daily schedule of duties which includes a cleaning schedule of all indoor surfaces, bathrooms, and outdoor equipment and toys. They have stepped up in diligence in cleaning of all surfaces.

*Many have asked about our Easter Event. It can bring in 800 to 1000 people or more in a day. State guidelines banned gatherings of more than 100 people, “festivals and parades”. There is no announced end date for this order, but we feel that it would be irresponsible to hold such an event of this size even if the ban was lifted.

Our market is stocked and ready for you to shop, the Family Playground is open, The pick-your-own fields are open with current veggies-kale, collards, turnips, cabbage, brussels sprouts, mustard greens. Asparagus will be ready at the end of March, Strawberries mid to end of April.

While at the farm, continue with the social distancing guidelines and hand washing.
