Let’s celebrate the spring season and the magic of Easter! We’ll have hundreds of eggs artfully hidden in our gardens and nursery. Our grounds are fenced and protected so, while there is plenty of room to hunt, your kids will never be out of your site. Also, the chickens may be roaming, and there might be a chance to hand feed them. Please bring your own basket for the hunt.
