COVID-19 SAFETY UPDATE

Farming operations and pick-your-own food farms are deemed ESSENTIAL businesses during the current coronavirus pandemic. At this time, Valley Fruits & Veggies expects to remain fully operational during the regular pumpkin season while taking into consideration the following:

  • As per state guidelines employees and customers will be required to wear a mask (unless a medical condition prevents otherwise – https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Stop-the-Spread.aspx).
  • Our pumpkin picking fields will be closely monitored to allow all customers to comfortably maintain a 6 foot social distance while enjoying their time on the farm.
  • Hayride capacity will be adjusted to match state requirements during the pumpkin season.
  • Families and their children must stay closely together at all times. 
  • Line markers and directional signage will be updated for activities and points of purchase allowing a 6 foot distance between customers.
  • To-go containers for all food purchases will be available in addition to pre-picked pumpkins and other fall items for individuals who do not seek to ride the hayride to the field.

Adding To Our Adventure

Chris Colitas

Chris’s background is rooted in agriculture. Growing up locally in Bethlehem, his family operated pick-your-own strawberry fields for many years in Northampton. By the age of 14, Chris obtained his tractor license and discovered a love for operating equipment. If it has wheels, Chris can drive it! Graduating from Penn State with a degree in landscape contracting, Chris honed his talent of plant growth and cultivation for over two decades.

The impeccable fields, corn maze cutting, and amazing berries are all because of Farmer Chris, he is amazing!

Deb Colitas

At Valley Fruits & Veggies, Deb can be found doing a little bit of everything alongside Chris and managing the crew. You know her most from Facebook Live, as she has gotten used to being called out as ‘Strawberry Lady’ when grocery shopping, attending local networking meetings, and even picking the kids up from school!

When not at the farm, Deb is a ‘Networking Ninja’, helping other businesses find their own success like Valley Fruits & Veggies. As founder and CEO of Digital Network Superstar, she brings her wealth of networking and social media talents to others.
