One of my favorite springtime activities is to explore a farm. I love seeing all the beautiful flowers and petting the adorable baby animals. I also love all the Easter fun. We are so lucky to live in the Garden State because we have plenty of farms to choose from with exciting, family-friendly activities. Here are some amazing Easter events and experiences happening on a farm near you!
