COVID-19 Updates

I'm leaving this page here for posterity and in case I ever need it again.

Masks have not been required in store since 2022, but I encourage those who want to wear a mask to do so!


As of... some time in August 2022, the Farmhouse has moved to a "Masks Encouraged" policy! I will still be wearing a mask while in contact with customers, but you don't have to.

Previously mentioned things like ordering online (codes LOCAL or CURBSIDE will waive shipping charges for in-store pickup) or calling ahead with your order are still good ideas!

And, if you were waiting to make wine without a mask on, this is your chance! I will also still make wine for you because the pandemic is still going on, whether we like it or not, and I want everyone to be relatively comfortable here. Thanks!


Here are the old, outdated-for-now, updates, for the sake of posterity: (No need to read them.)

The previous updates are still relevant (see below), but the short version is that masks are still required in the store! Otherwise, curbside pickup and shipping are available for most items. Use the handy CURBSIDE code at checkout to waive shipping on orders you intend to pickup at the store.

Previous updates, as of May 2021:

We value you as a customer, but, more importantly, we value your well-being as a person...

The mask requirement remains in place in the Farmhouse. You gotta wear a mask in here whether you are vaccinated or not. Even if you carry your card around and show it off. (If you can show proof of being vaxxed, I WILL give you 10% off a purchase!)

On the other hand, the capacity limits are gone (as of May 24th)! Been wanting to make wine with more than one other person? COOL! WE CAN DO THAT NOW!!!

As long as you are all masked. (Ye olde rules still apply to wine classes: minimum of 1 kit per 2 people; I recommend ordering ahead; missed appointments result in a $25 fee. Probably some others in there, too.)

Don't want to wear mask? Awesome. Curbside and shipping are still options.

Happy to do that for you.

*Back to the original text!*
