Fun and Healthy For Kids: Veggie Hunts at Moulton Farm

If you are looking to have fun with your children or grandchildren this summer, get them connected with the outdoors and the environment, or want to encourage some healthier eating habits, be sure to add at least one of our guided “Veggie Hunts” to your plans.  
These fun filled events combine the enthusiasm of Easter egg hunts with exploring where food comes from and how it grows.  Our guided “Veggie Hunts” bring children ages 5 to 9, accompanied by a parent or grandparent, into the farm’s fields with a member of our staff to learn about how each vegetable grows before the hunting begins. 
 “The looks on their faces are wonderful when they find the vegetables,” says John, who was an educator for years before retiring to run the farm fulltime. “They are excited about showing off their bounty and more inclined to try the vegetables. It’s a fun and educational experience for children and the adults who come with them − even for those who have gardened before."
A t-shirt for each child and the vegetables the children find during the veggie hunt are included in the event fee.  Each hunt event costs $12 for the first child in a family group and $10 for each additional child in the family group. There is no cost for parents or grandparents accompanying children.  
Tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking on each of the dates below or on the day of the event at our farm market.
