We are happy to announce that we will have U-Pick for 2020 in spite of the challenges caused by COVID restrictions. the UNH Coop has provided guidelines for U-Pick operations so that everyone can enjoy a safe and healthy season. We were especially concerned because we don’t have a traditional setup, but we think we have found a way to make it work.
We estimate U-pick will start July 12 – Please stay tuned for a definite date. In the meantime, here are the guidelines we have come up with so you can enjoy safe picking:
- To minimize crowds, we will be scheduling U-Pick by appointment at 1 hour intervals. You can choose the date and time with the Square scheduling tool.
- Choose Select a Service and choose a “pay one price” option to minimize handling by staff.
- When you arrive, you will be assigned a section with lots of berries, but also allowed to move among the bushes. We will mark a path through the fields with a specific entrance and exit.
- All payment will be made with a secure credit card system to further minimize contact.
