Linder Farms announced it is limiting its main parking lot to 25% capacity after Governor Little shifted the state back to a modified stage three. A post on the website asks people to please understand when you see a "Farm is Full" sign.

The bounce houses and the corn box at the farm are not open since they do not allow for proper social distancing. The rest of the attractions, including other inflatables, are still operating.

The farm is following guidelines from Central District Health, meaning people must wear a mask where social distancing cannot happen.

Additional hayrides are available at Linder Farms to help alleviate lines in that area. The COVID-19 precautions page on the Linder Farms website says that even with the extra rides, it is often crowded. People are asked to wear a face-covering on the hayride.

Staff are sanitizing surfaces throughout the day and there are hand sanitizer stations throughout the farm. More tables and chairs are in the courtyard and are spread out. The farm is working on an online food ordering system that will allow people to place orders from a phone app instead of waiting in line.

Admission tickets are available for purchase online in order to avoid lines. The farm says you can still pay for your guests and tokens at the end of the event, like usual.

The 2020 season does end on Halloween, so head out to Linder Farms for the fall festival while you can! The hours are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday.
