Much as we love easter treats and family time, Easter is at its core less about chocolate and more about new life. Read into it however you like, but spring chickens, little lambs and multiplying bunnies get us in an Easter mood, so take the kids to a local farm for a healthy dose of Easter cuteness!
Three local farms the kids will love
This cute little demonstration farm is tucked away down a side street in North Vancouver. It is all the things a farm should be according to children’s storybooks: cows, chickens, ducks, goats, horses, pigs, and a big red barn. Maplewood Farm is centred around the little people who can pat the goats, feed the bunnies and wander around the duck-filled pond all while getting in some fresh air and woodsy walks.
