About Easter Eggcitement

Throughout the Easter school break, the farm is alive with the cheeps and bleats of baby animals, who will be introduced to you at handling and encounter sessions. Grab your clue sheet, sharpen your pencil, and tear around the farm collecting clues on the springtime trail. Keep a look out for hidden eggs that might win you a prize. In the craft area you can make bonnets, masks and other springtime decorations.

There will be still further special attractions over the four days of Easter (14th to 17th April), including our famous plastic duck race along the mill lade.

Daily from Saturday 1st April until Monday 17th April

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Easter Eggcitement are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
