The Easter Bunny will be in the Egg Patch waiting for you at Braehead Farm!

Join us on Saturday, April 8th, Sunday April 9th, and THE FOLLOWING SATURDAY April 15, 2017 for our annual Easter Event!  Visit with The EASTER IMG_0906 (2)BUNNY in the EGG PATCH and have an EASTER EGG HUNT!  Also…. Hayrides around the Egg Patch!  A scavenger hunt around the farm with a prize!  PLAY in the FAMILY-PLAY-GROUNDS and visit the farm animals!  

Also, available for purchase, we will  have lunch and concessions, 2017 Spring and Summer Season Passes and there will be a face painter too!

Each **CHILD will be able to find one dozen (12) eggs!  After  finding a dozen eggs, visit with the Easter Bunny  who will be in the egg patch and show that you found your dozen!  You will  receive a special SURPRISE from the Easter Bunny.  Bring your cameras for photos with the Easter Bunny!   Don’t forget your Easter basket!   Also each child will receive a scavenger hunt.  The hunt will require them to find clues around the farm to spell out the secret word that leads them to a PRIZE! 

The farm is open from 9am to 6pm.  The Easter Bunny will be in the Egg Patch from  9:30 am – 1:00 pm & 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm.     There is a bunny/egg patch break from 1pm-2pm so the Easter Bunny can replenish his eggs and eat his carrots for lunch!

Parents: We will limit the amount of families in the egg patch at one time with a displayed LED number ticket system .  You can play, go on a hayride or do the scavenger hunt if you have to wait for your family’s turn!   The limit of  children in a hunt allows the smaller children to have a chance too!  We also limit the amount of eggs to each child for this reason too!   Each  guest who pays to enter into the Easter Event Area will receive an event wristband, and family number.   If your family number is at or below the number shown on the LED sign at the entrance to the egg patch, you can go into the patch! There is no mass running to get eggs!  Safe for the little ones!  No waiting in line….go play and come back to check to see if your number has been called!  Enjoy lunch and concessions from the Braehead Kitchen!

The Easter Event Admission Cost is $9.00 per PERSON (CHILDREN AND ADULTS), which is our everyday $5.00 Family Play-Grounds fee PLUS the Easter Event fee of $4.00.   ** (PLEASE NOTE:  The additional $4.00 fee is the same for CHILDREN AND ADULTS.   WE DID NOT CHARGE MORE FOR CHILDREN TO GET 12 EGGS. The event averaged the price at one price for children and adults.) 2017 Spring & Summer Family Play-Grounds Pass Holders only pay the EVENT FEE of $4.00 per PERSON.   Age 2 and under are always free to the Family Play-Grounds, and if they are PARTICIPATING IN THE EGG HUNT they only pay the $4.00.  If  the age 2 and under is just coming along with a sibling and not picking up eggs,  they are free!    Everyone will need their Easter Event Wristband to get on the hay wagon and go into the egg patch.     

The hay wagons will go continuously around the egg patch , separate from the egg hunt and WITHOUT the break from 1-2.

If you would like to, after you open your eggs to get your prizes, we can recycle those plastic eggs that are turned back in.  You can turn them in at the market.

Guests attending parties in the rental barns will have to purchase a $4.00 EVENT wristband to participate in the Easter Event egg hunt, Easter Bunny visit, hayride and scavenger hunt.

So come on out!  The Braehead Farm Market will be open with many new items!   Play in the hay barn and on the play-ground, visit the farm animals!

Hope to see you down on the farm!

*All admission fees are charged a City of Fredericksburg admission tax

NOTE TO PARENTS:   Please be sure that your children get just the 12 eggs each.  We will be selling our tickets based on the number of filled eggs.  Please do not allow them to pick up the eggs, remove the candy/toy and throw the eggs back on the ground opened.  An opened egg with nothing inside is very disappointing to the next child coming along!  Thank you!

 Also available is our  2017 Spring and Summer Season’s Pass for unlimited play at Braehead Farm Play-Grounds in the Barn Lot!  The pass is good from March 1, 2017 through Labor Day which is September 4, 2017!  The cost is $20.00 per person, or a discounted household family pass of 5 or more for $100.00. Note: Some events, may still have a charge for entry.  2017 Spring and Summer Season’s Pass holders will not have to pay the $5.00 admission fee for the EASTER EVENT, only the $4.00 Easter Event Fee per person!

The Easter eggs were assembled and filled, and purchased from  Sunny Bunny Easter Eggs™.  This is a program of SWI Industrial Solutions which has been providing meaningful employment to people with disabilities since 1966.   Warning to Parents:  Each egg is filled with a small toy or candy.
