Hale Farm & Village is committed to the health and safety of our guests, staff and volunteers. This year Harvest Days will be updated to remove the high-touch activities. Western Reserve Historical Society’s reopening playbook, the Restart Plan, has been developed in close consultation with legal counsel, arts and culture leaders, and following guidance from local health experts, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and Ohio’s Responsible Restart Ohio guidance for Consumer, Retail, Services and Entertainment. Our plan includes requirements for face coverings for employees and visitors, no contact transactions, advance timed-entry ticket sales, increased access to sanitizing stations, enhanced cleaning protocols, physical distancing signage, and more.
Admission to Harvest Days is $12 adults (ages 13+); $6 youth (ages 3-12 yrs); WRHS members, youth 2 and under and active military are free. Presale tickets are requested and can be purchased by visiting www.halefarm.org or calling 330-666-3711.
