Direction cues for safe picking

Please keep 6’ distance from other pickers. Traffic flow of PYO guests will be clearly marked.

furry friends

Please leave all pets at home. As much as we love dogs at Heeman's and welcome at the greenhouse, for food safety reasons we don't permit pets in the PYO patch.
