Safety During COVID-19

Summertime is always busy here at Center Grove Orchard with so many preparations for the coming season. This year even more so as we take extensive steps for health and safety. While staying busy as bees here on the farm, we send a heartfelt thank you to the healthcare professionals, first responders, and all essential workers in our area. We are grateful for the opportunity to give families something to look forward to, continuing our tradition of providing families a place to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air while making memories to last a lifetime.

We want to you know what we are doing to keep our team members safe now and to prepare for our opening to guests on August 8.

We will continue to monitor the CDC guidelines and make additions and adjustments to our facilities to support the safety of our team members and guests.

Please note: Admission, group reservations and all add-ons are non-refundable under normal circumstances. However, should we find it necessary to close for reasons of public health, full refunds will be offered for purchases and reservations made for those days.
