As the State of Indiana moves into Stage 5 of Back on Track Indiana, the Huber Team is continuing to follow many of the safety and sanitization protocols already place. The comfort and health of our customers and employees is still our primary concern.
We have hand sanitation stations at different points throughout the Farm for use by customers and employees. Employees are completing a wellness assessment before reporting to work and are required to wear face coverings. We ask that guests also assess their health before visiting us, and all guests must wear a face covering while indoors, unless seated at a table or eating/drinking, and outdoors while waiting for or riding a U-pick wagon or if it is otherwise not possible to socially distance.
We will continue to encourage appropriate physical distancing in all indoor and outdoor areas and ask that guests limit contact with other guests. We are continuing to practice extensive sanitizing procedures in all public and private areas. With respect to specific areas of our business we will be doing the following:
Our on-premise dining is available with both indoor and outdoor seating. Guests may remove their face coverings when seated at a table both indoors and outdoors. Tables have been strategically placed to allow for appropriate physical distancing and will seat no more than 6 people per table. We ask that guests do not move tables or chairs from their original positions, and we will require that groups larger than 6 be seated at more than one table. Customers may bring their own lawn chairs or other seating for use in our immediate outdoor areas but we ask that guests observe physical distancing standards when placing their chairs around other guests.
The Starlight Café Face coverings are required for all staff and guests when inside our Café. Guests who visit us to place or pick up orders for either dine in or carryout are asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines at all times. To reduce the number of people in our indoor spaces we ask that guests limit the number of people in your party waiting in line or standing in indoor common areas. Please look for posted signage for guidance in all indoor areas. When possible, we ask that your party remain at your table or in outdoor areas. We have also added our Outdoor Grill on the weekends and ask that guests wear a face covering and observe appropriate physical distancing standards while waiting in line to place orders and pick up food, even when outdoors.
Tastings are available daily at the bars in the Tasting Loft, which has been set up to accommodate social distancing. We are adding additional tasting locations for weekend tastings, at our Lakeside View Tasting Tent and in our Stillhouse. Guests may remove face coverings while experiencing a tasting and we ask that you observe appropriate physical distancing standards at all times. We can accommodate walk-ins as space allows and ask that guests continue to be patient with our procedures and limited resources. Wine Club tastings will continue to be limited to member and Co-Member only.
Our Farm Park is open regular hours. We have added extra sanitization protocols for all surfaces and are asking all guests to maintain appropriate social distancing requirements, whether indoors or out. Face coverings are not required outdoors in our Farm Park unless it is not possible to socially distance.
U-Pick is ongoing, and we have implemented procedures and protocols in the outdoor areas to reinforce social distancing guidelines for guests waiting to board U-pick wagons. We are utilizing double the usual number of wagons to accommodate decreased capacity and are assigning U-pick “zones” for each U-pick group. Guests must wear face coverings while waiting for or riding U-pick wagons.
The Farm Market and Ice Cream Factory are open, as usual, with enhanced sanitation practices and social distancing guidelines in place. Seasonal Produce is available for purchase in the Farm Market, along with dry goods, sweets, and bakery items. Face coverings are required for all guests and employees while inside these buildings, unless eating or drinking.
Plantation Hall is fully operational and currently scheduling and holding events. We can now accommodate larger groups though we will continue to follow State and Local guidelines regarding social distancing. Please call or email our event coordinators with questions or to schedule events.
