Without Easter eggs, modern children would never know the joy of foraging for their food, and parents would never know the joy of sitting down for five minutes. Celebrate the peace and quiet of the hunt with this Groupon.
- C$10 for an Easter egg hunt for two (a C$20 value)
- C$10 for an Easter egg hunt for one with a summer admission ticket (a C$20 value)
Kids can visit the farm on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (April 18-20) from noon to 4 p.m. to meet the Easter Bunny, hunt for eggs, ride in a horse-drawn wagon, and sip hot chocolate in a forest cabin. After the hunt, children aged 10 and younger will receive a bag of candy while their older counterparts participate in a scavenger hunt. Families are also encouraged to bring their own lunch to enjoy at the farm’s picnic area.
McMaze Corn Maze
McMaze Corn Maze was established more than a decade ago by Sandy McDonald, who designed the family’s first 3.5-acre corn maze when he was just 14 years old. Over the next 10 years, Sandy and his family watched their endeavour blossom into a year-round family-friendly business that hosts seasonal activities year-round. Fall is the family’s busiest season, when visitors flock to find spooks in their farm playground and wagon rides, and explore the pumpkin patch to search out a perfect specimen to be turned into a pie, jack-o’-lantern, or organic football helmet. The original hand-carved corn maze has since multiplied into five separate mazes, including a “haze maze,” which mystifies wanderers by sending them on a seemingly endless journey through fog and lights, and a door maze that presents 52 possible exits.
Winter snowfalls fail to stop the McDonalds’ love of celebrating, and so they invite families back to the 120-acre farm for old-fashioned sleigh rides through the woods, made all the more festive with hot chocolate and homemade cinnamon buns. Once the ground thaws in the spring, the farm comes alive again as guests descend upon the fields to help plant the first pumpkin seeds and welcome the arrival of baby farm animals as they parachute down from passing blimps. Homemade ice cream keeps things cool throughout the summer as pig and duck races entertain spectators of all ages, and parents stock up on corn on the cob and other farm-fresh produce.
