After nearly nine months of “pivoting” their business model due to the pandemic, Jack Creek Farms is closing its doors until California can re-open to tourism.

In a company statement released on Wednesday, Dec. 31, the local farm explained, “after running the numbers, it is costing us more to stay open than if we were to temporarily close. We made this hard decision to ensure we are still around on the other side of this pandemic.”

And they are not alone; local businesses along the Central Coast have had to make the difficult decision to either stay open as long as financially possible or close with hopes of re-opening when the dust has settled.
