VISITOR HEALTH & SAFETY

All guests 5 years and older are required to show proof on arrival of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof can include your vaccination card, a picture of the card on your phone, or a state-provided digital record. All Blue Hill and Stone Barns Center staff adhere to the same guidelines.

Masks are not required on Stone Barns Center’s campus, though we welcome the optional use of masks indoors.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are showing symptoms of COVID-19, or have had close contact with a person who has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 14 days, we ask that you stay home and monitor your health.

When visiting, we advise you to wear clothing appropriate for a day out on the farm. You may encounter uneven terrain, farm equipment and unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells. We encourage you to explore but ask you to respect our farmers’ work as well as our animals and crops by keeping a safe distance and staying on designated paths.

Please remember that many fences are electrified for our animals’ protection. Do not pet our animals. Whenever possible, and always before eating, clean your hands by washing and lathering vigorously for at least 20 seconds before rinsing. Wipes and sanitizers do not provide adequate protection. Children under 5, pregnant people, and individuals with heart disease or compromised immune systems should exercise caution while visiting any farm.
