Wellwood Orchards, Inc. has given our NO DOG POLICY great thought and we have taken the advice of other orchards and institutions on the matter.
We agree that allowing dogs is a *risk that we can easily eliminate while still providing the safety and family atmosphere for all of our customers.
As of January 1, 2016 we will
NO LONGER ALLOW DOGS
in any field or orchard
Service Dogs should be properly identified.
(A public entity may ask if the animal is required because of a disability and what work or task the animal has been trained to perform).

*Domestic animals can carry human pathogens. To the extent possible, keep farm pets and other domestic animals out of fields that are close to harvest. If you have U-Pick fields, keep customers’ pets out of production areas (or create a designated dog area away from crops).
Thank you for your consideration- Wellwood Orchards, Inc. Management.
