Give a child something they will really dig with today’s Groupon to the Bunny Bonanza at Busy Barns Adventure Farm in Fort Atkinson.

Mary and Gary Telfer’s family of farmers have filled Busy Barns with interactive exhibits and activities to keep kids and parents smiling, laughing, and learning. The educational amusement farm puts tiny hands in touch with fuzzy animals and restored farm equipment, raising awareness about agriculture and refining moo-yodeling skills. The farm’s inaugural Bunny Bonanza celebrates Easter with a host of rabbit-centric events, setting youngsters loose for the egg hunt with a chance to unearth the golden-egg grand prize. Each junior hopper gets the chance to search for 12 filled eggs and they receive a scavenger-hunt clue card upon entry. The Easter Bunny makes his whiskered mug available for photos throughout the day, but steps out at 11:30, 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. for a puppet show. Kids can also try their hands at Easter Egg Plinko, fire the egg launcher ($1 for three eggs), and celebrate spring by petting new baby goats, chicks, bunnies, and lambs.
Amid the holiday hares and the yolks of spring, Busy Barns’ usual farmland fun keeps the tractor wheels spinning. Little ones can hitch a lift on a hayride, conquer the obstacle course, or scurry down the rabbit-hole slide.
