"Basically, the closing is just precautionary because we do not want our customers exposed," co-owner Stanley Wise said.
WTVA reporter Erin Wilson spoke with Wise over the phone Friday since Wise is currently in quarantine.
He said the employees who tested positive do not come in contact with customers.
But to ensure all other staff members are safe, they closed the farm for deep sanitation, making sure all farm equipment is disinfected before reopening.
"We may have to have alternative staff before we can open again."
Wise said all employees are required to wear masks and because of farm space, social distancing is not an issue.
"Of course, this is a farm and people can social distance on 65 acres," Wise said.
