NORTHBOROUGH – It’s Mother’s Day weekend and if you’re still looking to get mom something special, you’re in luck.
Yellick’s Farm— located at 238 Hudson St. in Northborough — is officially open for their fourth season, providing you with a selection of hanging and potted flowering plants.
This weekend, cool weather crops such as lettuce, kale, broccoli, and a variety of herbs are available. These offerings will soon be followed by tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers, which will be ready for the weekend of May 16.
Owner Kerrie Yellick told ThisWeekInWorcester.com, “Farming is already a gamble since we are constantly dealing with unpredictable weather patterns, and we are now dealing with a pandemic.”
“But people have been inside. They want to see colors, they want to grow their own, and they want activities with their families,” Yellick said. “I think sales are going to be great. I think people are really going to enjoy this. Gardening is very therapeutic.”
Due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Yellick’s is currently not allowing customers inside of the farmstand, but is offering curbside pick up or delivery within Northborough. Walk-in sales are allowed outside, or by appointment.
To further implement social distancing protocols, Yellick’s is admitting a limited number of customers at a time, and is requiring face masks and gloves to be worn on property.
