Spring Fling & Egg Hunts at Gilchrist Farm
Spring has arrived at the Gilchrist Farm! With spring comes chicks, baby goats, the beginnings of the summer garden and our native butterfly garden! So much is happening this season, we can’t wait to share it all with you. Come and see for yourself! We are open to the public every Saturday year-round from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with Pony Rides, Wagon Rides, Crafts and Petting Zoo. Each weekend, we put out the babies for visits with their adoring public. Come on by, hold a chick, cuddle a baby goat, pet a pig, hold a bunny, and learn to milk a goat. Our goat milking demonstrations resume mid-April and take place weekly on Saturday mornings at 9 a.m., free of charge!
Our Egg Hunt and Spring Fling takes place on Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. We’ll have egg hunts for all ages at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Our Spring Animal Care Class students will be releasing butterflies into our butterfly garden at noon! Join us for this wonderful event. We’ll have a “hug a bunny” area, chick zone, baby goats, pony rides, wagon rides, special spring crafts, egg hunts, live music, great food and some surprises! No charge for admission. The egg hunt is included with the purchase of a value pack ($25 for $30 worth of activities) or for just $3. There is no admission or parking charge, and each activity (pony rides, wagon rides, crafts, petting zoo) is just $5.
