Notice To Our Customers

While we have entered uncertain times, Donaldson Farms realizes our responsibility to support the health and wellness of our community. It’s always been our goal to supply our community with fresh produce, quality meats, local dairy, delicious baked goods, honey and more – and we’ve had many years of practice! Healthy food, which is always important, is even MORE important now.  We want to be sure that everyone feels comfortable shopping at our farm market, especially our loyal community of seniors.

Here’s what WE are doing to protect our customers and staff

  • Provide a handwashing station on the front porch of the market for customers to use before and after entering the market – please use it!
  • Using an hourly disinfecting schedule, our staff will be wiping down surfaces, door handles, register counters, etc. frequently
  • Limit the number of customers in the market – there may be times when you will have to wait until a customer leaves to be able to enter
  • Keep as many doors open as possible to encourage airflow
  • Discussing online ordering, distribution/delivery for those in our community who are unable to come to use. We will update you if/when this option becomes available.

Here’s what YOU can do to protect yourself, our customers and staff

  • Be mindful of other customers in the market. Keep a respectful distance, practice safe handwashing, avoid touching your face, and otherwise follow CDC guidelines
  • Choose with your eyes! Resist the urge to “manipulate” fresh produce items in bulk displays, despite touching different items being a typical part of the selection process
  • Limit the handling of baked goods and packaged items – try to buy with your eyes before selecting
  • Limit children from touching produce, other items, and surfaces as best as possible
  • If you are feeling ill, please send somebody to do your shopping for you
  • Be patient with our staff as we implement new safety policies and procedures
  • Do your part to protect the safety and well-being of our staff and their families just as our staff will be taking measures to protect you and yours

Hopefully, conditions will improve soon, but if we need to adapt for better security, we will. We have a dedicated group of staff and we will do our very best to safely meet the needs of our community. Taking care of ourselves and others is the best investment we can make in these uncertain times – we hope to make things a bit easier for you by providing fresh and nutritious foods in a trusted and stress-free environment. Thank you so much for continuing to support our family farm and local farms and businesses throughout New Jersey. We welcome your feedback as we work to make our products more accessible to our community during these challenging times. We look forward to seeing you soon!
