Birchwood Meadows is committed protecting the health of our community. In addition to enhanced workplace sanitation practices, we will be continuing to enforce social distancing protocols, to protect our guests, staff and loved ones who remain at high risk.
If you are planning a visit to the farm or utilizing our curbside pickup option, this page will be updated with our current Covid-19 safety procedures and guidelines for visitors.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these changing circumstances. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Birchwood Meadows is welcoming visitors by appointment only. The number of visitors will be limited to reflect current government guidelines, allow for social distancing, and enable our staff to engage with everyone in a safe manner.
The U-Pick flower garden is expected to reopen in late July 2021, and runs until first frost! Check out @birchwoodmeadows on social media for a hint of what's in bloom.
Private Groups: For groups of 6-12, we recommend a private booking. For availability, please email us at email@example.com
Guidelines for All Guests:
1. If you suspect you may have been exposed to Covid-19, or are experiencing any symptoms of illness, we ask that you please stay home and cancel your visit. Birchwood Meadows reserves the right to turn away visitors exhibiting symptoms associated with Covid-19.
2. Social distancing between groups as well as members of our team must be maintained at all times, regardless of current government guidelines. We appreciate your cooperation, as some members of our team have loved ones who are considered high risk.
3. Please note that per Alberta bylaw, masks are currently required to be worn in all indoor spaces - at the farm, this includes the greenhouse and shop. We kindly request all visitors to wear a mask for the duration of your visit, even outdoors, to protect our staff and other visitors. We understand this may not be possible for all individuals, and simply ask that you make the best decision you can.
4. Be advised: washroom facilities on site are limited. Washrooms will be cleaned regularly and sanitizing wipes will be available.
