    Strawberry farm adjusts with drive-thru shopping
    Lancaster Farming
    Fifer Orchards held a drive-thru this week to keep customers connected to the family and farm that has been operating since 1919. Because of COVID-19, Fifer’s has been limiting sales to online ordering. Customers order produce online, pick a time slot and then show up to be ushered into a parking spot and handed a bag of goodies by friendly mask-wearing staff. They never have to leave their cars and there's no hand-to-hand contact. Spring is a busy time here, and the strawberries and asparagus are both in full swing and heavy demand right now. However, there are no pick-your-own strawberries this season.

    Virtual tastings help Texas wineries connect amid coronavirus
    Austin 360
    One of the simplest, most fundamental ways that people can connect is over the dinner table with food and drink. And in these next few weeks, as an increasing number of cities and states in the U.S. issue shelter-in-place orders amid the coronavirus pandemic, such connection is going to be more essential than ever, Kuhlman Cellars founder Chris Cobb says. Located along U.S. 290 on the way to Fredericksburg, Kuhlman shut down its tasting room the night before Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the closure of bars and restaurant dining rooms statewide last week.
