Easter at Amish Acres
Easter brings Amish Acres back to life each spring
March 27, 2016
The secular traditions and festivities that surround and symbolize Easter create a spring stir on the farm. An Easter egg hunt for 1,500 hidden eggs in the courtyard brings out a vigorous group of kids of all ages. A coloring contest in the Barn Loft Grill provides a place for families to wait for their tables while the kids did their best to stay within the lines--easier for some than others.
