Strawberry farm adjusts with drive-thru shopping
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.
