Hardy Farm Reopen

None of us ever thought 2020 would be like this. It has been a very long Spring. With the Governor’s latest update on her reopening plan, we can now say we are open for 2020. This year will look very different.

Below is a list of updates and precautions we are taking. We will continue to add to this list as we cautiously progress into the 2020 and 2021 weddings season.

  –  At this time we can only host a maximum gathering of 50 people, so until this restriction is dropped, we have “limited availability” for smaller events and have available weekends August, September, October, and November this year.

  –  There is no 14 day quarantine requirement for New Hampshire or Vermont Residents

  –  14 day quarantine remains in effect for others unless they utilize the testing waiver, obtain and can provide evidence of a negative test within 72 hours of arriving in the state, and complete a compliance document of same. You can find more information on testing and documents needed on the state’s Keep Maine Healthy website.

  –  Because your group will be utilizing Hardy Farm exclusively, as a requirement of all lodging establishments we will also need to collect a copy of those certificates for your planned out of state overnight guests who are not New Hampshire or Vermont residents PRIOR TO THEIR ARRIVAL.

NOTE: Non New Hampshire or Vermont out of state wedding guests who are not staying on-site at Hardy Farm (or in Maine) but are staying in North Conway do NOT have the testing requirement. When they check into their lodging location, they can simply attest that they have quarantined for 14 days prior to arrival in New Hampshire.

  –  We will work with couples and caterers to accommodate social distancing requirements and are utilizing heightened cleaning protocols as well as providing hand sanitizer and disinfectant towelettes.

  –  While we strongly encourage use of masks, and require them of our staff and vendors, we will defer to the couple regarding this provision with their guests.

–  You are required to maintain contact information for ALL guests attending your event for contact tracing purposes should that be needed. This shouldn’t pose a problem as presumably you will have a guest list already completed.

  –  We will require a “check-in” of each guest attending your event with our Event Manager who will be on site. At that check-in she will verify that we have contact information for each guest and she will also take each adult guests’ temperature upon arrival utilizing an infrared non-touch thermometer. Individuals with abnormal temperatures will not be admitted to the event and will be referred for medical attention.
