Springtime on the Farm

Spring fever is upon us and pollen is not the only thing wading in the throes of the season. It’s getting warmer outside and we’re all restless, shedding our layers in exchange for airier fabrics. Maybe we have a sudden urge to jog or we just can’t stop smiling. Whatever your symptoms, all signs point to the same thing—it’s time to immerse yourself in nature. What better way to experience all that spring has to offer than in one of nature’s playgrounds: farms! Celebrate longer days in these 5 fun farms that you’ll want to visit with friends and family.

A unique Easter Weekend outing is on tap in our historic Wessels Hall: An Egg Hunt for Adults. At night. With flashlights. Mark your calendars: Saturday, April 20. The cool shindig runs from 7-11 p.m. The evening will feature the well-known swing band Texas Wranglers playing in a historic dance hall that will make you feel like you’re back in the days of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Then there’s the Easter Egg Hunt for adults only, with lots of eggs filled with prizes, gift certificates and take-home surprises much better than the ones you got in your eggs as kids. Cool and useful prizes will be up for grabs, from a variety of sponsors. Bring your flashlights and baskets, and be ready to scramble.
