FUN and LEARNING TOGETHER at the FARM
Spring Farm Tours 2013
Spring is an exciting time of year to be on the farm. The plow is turning the soil to prepare the fields for planting and the orchards are full of spring blossoms waiting for the bees to pollinate them. The farm is a wonderful classroom in the spring. We invite you join us for the experience.

Our season begins with the ever popular Egg Hunt Hayride. The trip includes a hayride to the egg field where we greet the children and give them very basic instructions on hunting for those special eggs. All of the children hunt for 5 colored eggs. This is not a contest but an enjoyable event. Once they’ve gathered their eggs they sort them by color and are given a goodie bag full of treats. Back on the hayride they go to visit with none other than Peter Rabbit! He awaits the children to hear of their exciting adventure and loves having his
picture taken with them.

We love to see future farmers at work! This trip also includes a Farm tour and explanation of what is going on at the farm in the spring.
