Proulx Farm COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines During Pick-Your-Own Season

To our valued customers, we welcome you back for our 26th annual Pumpkin Festival. We are dedicated in maintaining a safe, clean environment, and an enjoyable experience for all our new or returning guests, and devoted staffs. While complying with all governmental policies and guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic these are the measures we have taken:

  • All our employees will be wearing proper protective gear when the 2M distance cannot be respected.
  • Protective shield in front of each register.
  • Hand sanitizer stations throughout the farm as well as hand washing station (soap and water). We do ask that all sanitize/wash their hands with soap and water for 30 seconds prior to playing on any structures to help stop the spread of COVID-19
  • Proper spacing to a minimum of 2 meters is always required between each person or families or “bubble” while enjoying the farm and activities it has to offer, and during the picking. When walking to and from the fields, all must keep to the right in the direction the red arrows. Please respect others and the 2M distance.
  • We have decided to restrict the amount of people playing at a time to 100 people per time slot so everyone can enjoy the farm and it’s outdoor activities and easily keep a safe distance from the other guests throughout your stay.
  • Only outdoor seating will be available for this season. Picnic tables can be found throughout the farm with 2 outdoor/covered areas available should anyone want them. Indoor seating is NOT/NOT available for this season to be able to follow the guidelines setup by Public Health and the government of Ontario.
  • Although most of our activities including the petting zoo have been reopen although after consulting with Public Health officials and reading the school guidelines, we’ve decided that certain attractions will remain closed as we cannot guarantee a 2M distance. These include: The inflatable Halloween maze, both haunted houses to prevent gatherings and the 35-acre Poke-maze has been changed to a nature walk and hidden Pokémon will be hidden throughout the farm instead.
