COVID Updates

COVID-19 Updates

Safety is our top priority at Cox Farms. Below you’ll find the latest updates about how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our operations this fall, including policies, new safety measures, and other changes.

Masks

Wondering about our mask policies for visitors during the Fall Festival and Fields of Fear? For the Fall Festival, masks are recommended always and required on Monday afternoons. For Fields of Fear, masks are recommended always and required in the haunted attractions.

Festival Operating Schedule

The Fall Festival will be open Friday through Monday during our 2021 season. The festival will be closed Tuesdays through Thursdays, except for Tuesday, Nov 2. Our Market will be open daily.

Crowd Mitigation and Other Measures

We are taking many steps to make the farm as safe as possible for everyone this fall. We are fortunate to be an outdoor and spacious venue. We have capped attendance to reduce crowding; this required changes to our ticketing, so you’ll notice that Fall Festival tickets are valid only on a specific date. Throughout the grounds, we have spaced our picnic tables to allow for more distance between groups when sitting down to eat.

Employee Safety

The safety of our Cox Farmers is of the utmost importance. We have taken steps to make working at Cox Farms as safe as possible for our staff, which in turn also makes it even safer for our visitors. Take comfort in knowing that Cox Farmers are vaccinated; the very small percentage of employees opting out of this requirement will be tested weekly. Almost all employees will be masked at almost all times. If you have any concerns or feedback about safety, please be in touch!

Hello They are friends of the animals. I have a beagle that serves as a registered emotional support. Can I go with me to your farm?

Masking is required for employees and always recommended for visitors. Tickets are limited and only available online this year, so buy early! Find details here: coxfarms.com/covid

While it does not fully convey his handsomeness, this drawing accurately represents the real Chewie as a white llama with markings on his face/eye and tail. We don't really make Chewie wear a mask, but Farmer Cox does!]

Thank you. Cox Farm for protecting your visitors and your employees!

As wonderful as Cox Farms’ artwork always is, I agree that the illustration does not fully convey Farmer Cox’s handsomeness. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Looking to buy tickets for tomorrow. Do I need a ticket for my under 2 year old kids? Cox Farms

We are coming from the OBX, NC. See you tomorrow with 2 very excited kiddos.

This doesn’t really bother me but I’ve been to several places throughout this pandemic that have a mask policy but what I just saw on your website about your mask policy is by far the worst I’ve ever seen a business could ever do. You guys are requiring masks to be worn at all times including outdoors on Monday afternoons after 2 PM but you don’t require them on Fridays Saturdays and Sundays when the farm gets super crowded and Mondays are always dead so why are you requiring people to wear a mask on literally the least crowded day ever and have social distancing on Mondays as well but on all other days you don’t require them. I’ve never seen that bad of a mass policy ever in my life and like I said earlier this doesn’t really affect me but for other people it may make a lot of people feel very angry and I can tell you right now you’re gonna lose a lot of attendance on Mondays with this policy so can you please explain to me why do you have a mask requirement only on Monday afternoons but not on the weekends? Also you don’t require masks on Columbus Day which is a Busy holiday. Please tell me why you had to make this policy and make all of us wear masks when we go on Mondays just please tell me. I deathly respect about your policy and everything but I just cannot believe you would make a policy that does not make any sense at all and there’s no point about protecting people like that. You guys made it totally wrong new right here. I’m sorry that you have to hear this but I’m just explaining facts here. Thank you.

Cox Farms is capacity more limited than usual on all days or just Mask Mondays?

Throwback Thursday- Like many of you, Fall 2019 was the last time Leona was at Cox Farms. She is back at the Barn Slide, and my, how she's grown! We hope you'll come to see her this weekend at the Fall Festival- we'll be open this Saturday (9/18) and Sunday (9/19), 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days (last entry one hour before closing). Tickets are limited and only available online this year, so buy now! coxfarms.com/fall-festival/fall-festival-tickets/ (In the meantime, in the comments below, you'll find an updated photo of Leona settling in yesterday.)

[IMAGE: Quite possibly one of the cutest baby piglets to ever exist, Leona hams it up for the camera. At only a few weeks old in this 2019 photo, she is already full of sass! Photo shows a small pink pig covered in black spots with one black ear. She is standing on a bed of straw, looking up and directly at the camera, and the all-black head of one of her siblings is visible behind her.]
