COVID-19 Green Phase Update

Now that York County has moved into the green phase we feel it is necessary to update the public on safety measures at Miller Plant Farm.  Please know that we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our team along with our community.

Diligent cleaning measures are taken throughout the facility, among all carts, doors, countertops, restrooms, and other common surface areas. In order to control the flow of customer traffic, we continue to have designated entrance and exit points to our facility. Marks also may be found on the floor indicating a safe social distance during checkout, and during our CSA pickup days for members who are waiting in line. Contactless curbside pickup of plants, fresh produce, and other grocery items continues to be available Thursday-Saturday.

We strongly urge all customers to wear a mask, and require a mask for entry into the indoor section of the farm market. Due to recent state regulations you must wear a mask inside our store. If you do not have one, a disposable one will be provided to you. All employees are required to have a mask on their person at all times. All indoor market employees are required to wear a mask during business hours. Greenhouse staff is required to have a mask on their person, and at minimal, wear the mask when working directly with customers. We are wearing masks to protect you, and ask that you do your part to protect us along with fellow shoppers.  

Please offer your understanding with masks on the following:

There are members of our team who have health conditions qualifying them for exemptive status or have preexisting conditions that put them at a risk for other illness when wearing a mask, especially during hot weather. 

High temperatures may limit the duration in which our greenhouse staff can safely keep a masks over their nose and mouth.  The greenhouse commonly heats in excess of 90 degrees, especially during sunny days, and at this point it is our belief that a mask could present higher risks for heat-related illness to our staff.

Customers who are sensitive to heat are encouraged to shop early in the day so that they may more comfortably wear a mask.

Thank you and please know that safety during these difficult times is still a priority for Miller Plant Farm. From Our Farm to Your Family, we appreciate your ongoing support.
