Please Work Together to Play Safe
With the Covid-19 virus sweeping through the world and touching our community, we have been following the news closely, looking to leaders in the attractions, entertainment and agricultural communities to see what adjustments we should make to our business. The safety of our guests and team members is always our first priority, especially now. A trip to Basse's in 2020 is going to look different than it did in the past, but we hope you’re still able to create lasting memories with your families. Please, spread out over our 80+ acres! Enjoy the outdoors, wear masks indoors and when appropriate while outside, be kind to your neighbor, have fun and be safe. Here are some ways we are currently trying to minimize the Covid-19 risk at Basse’s.
Our Covid-19 Safety Plan
Below is our detailed plan of operation for our Fall Season. Our number one goal is to uphold a safe and healthy environment, while still operating our farm to continue growing lasting memories & traditions!
Basse's team members are required to wear masks at all times. In accordance with CDC guidance, we strongly encourage all guests over 2 years old to wear masks. Masks are required at any of our indoor locations (Main Store, Beer Barn, and walk through attractions). Masks are strongly encouraged outdoors, and when it’s difficult to maintain a physical 6-foot distance between people or family groups. Examples could be while in queue lines, when at an attraction, or in high traffic areas.
Our plan to keep you safe:
Providing hand sanitizer around the farm
(look for our 60+ bright orange dispensers)
Employee Safety Measures
All employees will be wearing masks and washing hands frequently
Making transactions cashless and as contactless as possible
Ramping up our already vigorous cleaning procedures
Limiting the number of guests in our buildings
We are limiting the number of guests to reflect government recommendations
We ask that you please:
Visit the farm only when you are healthy - if you have a fever, other symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days please stay home
Keep at least 6ft between your group and others
Use hand sanitizer and/or wash hands frequently
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting Basse's, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Frequently asked questions
How will you limit capacity at Basse's this Fall?
Basse's will be limiting attendance at all times. We anticipate this will only affect guests on our peak days, especially October weekends. We will be cutting off admission to Basse's every day if or when we reach maximum capacity. Please arrive early, and be prepared to change plans if you are not able to enter the farm.
When will there be the least people at Basse's this Fall?
Visiting at off-peak times means less people, traditionally weekends in September are slowest for us. Also, coming during the weekdays for Pumpkin Fest is a great choice. Coming on September weekends or on weekdays is a cheaper alternative too!
Who is required to wear a mask at Basse's this Fall?
Our team members are required to wear masks at all times at Basse’s. Masks are required at all of our indoor locaitons (Main Store, Beer Barn, and walk through attractions). Guests over 2 years old are strongly encouraged to wear masks while outdoors, especially when they are not able to maintain a physical 6-foot distance between people.
How will I know if Basse's is at full capacity for the day?
We will update our website home page & Facebook the moment we have hit our capacity for any given day. Please make sure to check before you make the trip out and while you are on your way to our farm. If there is no notice about capacity for that day on our Facebook or website, this will mean we are still accepting walk ups & online tickets.
Why are September weekends cheaper than October weekends?
In an attempt to help spread out guests, our historically slower weekends in September are now cheaper than our typically busy weekends in October. Come during September to avoid crowds and save money!
If I buy online tickets, does that guarantee me entry that day?
No, entrance to Pumpkin Fest is a first come first admit basis. Online tickets can be used for other Pumpkin Fest weekends in 2020. In the event you are turned away due to full capacity please try coming another weekend or weekday, come early! There are no refunds on tickets purchased.
Are there any activity closures due to covid-19?
Yes, some activities pose too great of a risk to remain open. Unfortunately, our corn kernel beach, corn crib caverns, candy cannon, and wagon ride to the pumpkin patch are closed. (note the pumpkin patch is open and only a short walk away)
