Getting Ready for Pick-Your-Own — Do’s and Don’ts for the Upcoming Season

Tuesday, May 4, 2021     4:00-5:00 p.m. ET

Join growers and ag service providers from the Northeast for an interactive discussion about what is working and what is not as we prepare to open our farms to visitors for the upcoming pick-your-own season. The berries are ripening and the Covid-19 pandemic is evolving – what does that mean for PYO visitor management this season? What did you do last year that you’ll continue and what will be different this season?
