LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- Families soon will have more fun outdoor activities, as the Roca Berry Farm opens for the season.

“We’re thankful that we can open,” said Jordan Schaefer for Roca Berry Farm. “We feel pretty confident that we can give everyone as much of a normal experience as possible.”

Schaefer says the Roca team has been working non-stop to make the farm safe with many hand sanitizing stations, as well as, bringing in new games for children and revamping the café. They open this Saturday.

“Like going into the gift shop, into our pumpkin café, we are going to require masks,” said Schaefer. “But when you’re outside and you can maintain the social distance, you won’t be required to.”

Masks will be required for the train and haunted hayrack rides.

The Applejack Festival in Nebraska City also starts this weekend. The dates have been extended to encourage social distancing.

“Usually, we have a three–day weekend and that’s it,” said Tammy Partsch, Nebraska City of Tourism and Commerce. “We’re expanding it over four weeks altogether and so is this going to work?
