MALVERN, Ala. (WDHN) — With the first day of pumpkin season, Aplin Farms has worked hard by setting up different activities for families to take part in.
“We’ll have the pumpkin patch, sunflower fields, the wagon rides, the corn maze, all of those activities,” owner John Aplin said. “We’ll be open beginning tomorrow, and we’ll be open six and a half days of the week.”
Those worried about COVID-19, Aplin Farms will be following safety guidelines to keep people safe.
“We’re gonna try to keep our wagons probably at half capacity just like in a restaurant or anything else,” Aplin said. “Even though you’re outside, we’re gonna try to keep those at half capacity so everybody can spread out. Other than the wagons, most everything everybody should be able to spread out and social distance on their own.”
As for wearing mask, people will be required to wear them if they aren’t social distancing. For admission, there will be two bands for sell.
A $6 band that will give access to the wagon ride, animal barn, and the play area, and a $12 band will cover everything else. The festivities will be at different times during the week and weekend.
“Tuesday through Friday all of our activities will be available Tuesday through Friday from 1 to 6, Saturday from 9 to 6, and Sunday from 1 to 6,” Aplin said.
