Farmyard Fun at Willows this Easter

It’s getting to that time of year again…. time to start spending more time outdoors as the weather gets a bit milder and we can start plan things to do over the upcoming Easter holidays!

As you know if you are regular readers of this blog, we are huge fans of Willows Farm Village in Hertfordshire, we try to go as often as we can, the kids absolutely love it and I believe it to be one of the best days out for miles around. We’ve had many a fun day there, as you can see from this post or even this one!

This Easter, Willows have a jam-packed programme of activity on the cards! Their Easter Eggstravaganza will be running for three whole weeks, starting on the 28 March.

Willows will be upping the animal ante this Easter with new activities to keep the kids entertained.

New for this year is Willows’ first ever pig races! Cheer on Road Hog to get his snout in front of Flying Pig when the pigs are put through their paces by trainers Rodney Trotter and Pig in the Mud. Watch Higgledy-Piggledy ‘hog’ the limelight as she beats Pigmalion to the finish line. Find out whether Ein-swine or Mahogany is the olym-pig champion as they make their way around Willows Wallow, Hogs Hurdle and Trotters Turn. Plus, there’s a new prize badge for those who pick the victorious pig!

Visitors can also learn more about where their food comes from, thanks to new goat-milking demonstrations live on the Willows Show Stage. The fluffy chicks and bunnies of Willows will also be waiting in The Farmyard to say hello to visitors.

Farmer Andrew said: “We’re really excited by the new events at Easter this year, you’ve goat to see them! Our pigs are really intelligent and they love the attention from the crowd. Plus, visitors can expect to find all of their family favorites throughout the Easter period – we’ve really eggs-celled ourselves!”

The Easter Bunny will return to Willows to teach visitors her special “Bunny Hop” dance, and the Easter Garden is open for Willows Easter Egg Hunt with chocolate-y treats for the kids.

And even if the forecast is chilly, there’s plenty to do as Willows offers entertainment for all weathers. Head indoors to Captain Chicken’s Egg Dodge for egg-citement as families fire foam eggs at the opposing team.

All of the activities, shows and funfair rides are included in the entrance price to Willows, so parents know they’re in for carefree day whilst children eggs-plore the farm.

Easter Eggstravaganza is at Willows between the 28th March – 19th April.
