Adverse Weather / Rain

Safety is our number one priority at VonThuns, and we adjust our hours, opening, and closing times accordingly for weather events. If there is a chance of rain, or it is misting, we will be open. If in doubt, call the farm before you leave home. If it is only wet, we will be open, but please take this into consideration when planning to visit us and dress accordingly.

Terrain / Handicap Accessibility

We’ve done our best to provide smooth walkways for our visitors to walk on, but pathways can still be uneven or slippery, especially after a rain. All-terrain strollers or wagons for your kids work well, however they are not permitted in our picking fields. Wheelchairs are welcomed but users may experience difficulties accessing all areas of the farm. If you have any questions about our facilities, please contact us prior to your visit.
