Rudd Farm reopens drive-thru for strawberries after temporary closure due to COVID-19

Rudd Farm closed for a temporary time after an employee tested positive for coronavirus.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Rudd Farm reopened its drive-thru for strawberries and other produce on Tuesday. 

In a Facebook post, the farm said it will stay open until it sells out of strawberries for the day. Customers will need to stay in their cars while purchasing berries. Rudd Farm said each vehicle will be limited to two large baskets. The price per basket is $15.  

Last month, the farm announced on Facebook it would be closed temporarily after a staff member tested positive for the coronavirus. 

John Hedgecock says they've modified operations to help prevent another infection. Farmworkers are wearing masks and gloves. People are only allowed to pick one row over at a time. Families can stay together. All will have to wash their hands once they arrive and get a brand new bucket or bring their own. The rest of the season will only have drive-thru sales as well. 

Rudd Farm has been posting updates on Facebook about when you can expect the next drive-thru sales. The farm is located at 4021 Hicone Road in Greensboro. 

THANK YOU! To our amazing customers and friends who have prayed f... or our workers and family and checked on us daily - from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU! We have never felt more loved and supported.
