Dicot Farm COVID-19 Response

Last Updated December 16, 2020

We have strong food handling and safety practices that we will continue to update based on public health and other guidance:

  • We are washing our hands and sanitizing everything more often.
  • All Dicot Farm staff are trained to follow our food safety protocols.
  • Any staff, including Erik & Meghan, do not work if they do not feel well.
  • We have a flexible leave policy for staff, staff earn paid leave hours that they may use for sick leave, and we adhere to any federal and state policies on mandated leave.
  • Our veggies are minimally handled and are under our control the whole time until you take them home.

CSA:

  • All pick up locations are open air and allow for quick parking, stopping, and picking up with minimal interaction.
  • We will pre-pack shares so that CSA members will not have to touch or sort through individual items.
  • Members will receive email notifications with detailed information on pick up logistics the week before the first pick up.

Farmers Markets:

  • We are coordinating with our farmers market organizers to monitor and adhere to health and safety requirements.
  • Dicot Farm staff at farmers markets are designated between handling food and handling money. Washing hands is required before any crossover between the two.
  • A hand washing station is provided for staff. We have always had this for our PG County markets as a requirement of our sampling permit. Note we will still not be sampling any items.
  • We will keep all products under the tent and gather them for customers, who must remain outside the tent.
