EASTER EGG HUNTS ON ORGANIC FARMS

February 18th, 2010

Choco experts Green & Blacks are giving away 5,000 dark and milk chocolate eggs to smooth the way for the Soil Association-organised events, most of which are completely free.

About 50 farms from Devon to Fife are hosting farm visits throughout April, complete fun activities like tractor trailer rides, egg painting, meeting the animals, farm walks and even the chance to see newborn lambs. Most will take place around the school holidays.

Soil Association eggmeister, Rupert Aker, said: “Farm visits are great fun. We’ve been hosting them for over a decade and kids love them. Farmers get a lot out of them too, which is great. Organic farms are lovely places to visit. They are often more traditional than conventional ones, with more wildlife to see and a better mix of crops and animals.”
