Jack Creek Farms in Templeton is temporarily closing its doors during the state lockdown.

The owners of the farm say their decision is due in part to the lack of tourism in the area and across the state.

"We made this hard decision to ensure we are still around on the other side of this pandemic," owner Joy Barlogio said in a Facebook post December 30th.

During the tourism limbo, they're offering a "buy one, get one free" special for all perishable food and drinks in their store.

They are also adjusting their hours to Friday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We are CLOSING OUR DOORS – until California re-opens our region to tourism. After running the numbers, it is costing us...

For the next several months, the owners say they will focus on online orders.

"If we can find a home for those things and then close for a few months, concentrate on our online store to try to keep some cash flowing in, and then reopen whenever the governor tells us we can and see if we can save our little farm business," Barlogio said.

Items listed on their online store are not included in the promotional offer.
