Multiple Egg Hunts & Marshmallow Harvest mark the 19th season opening of Great Country Farms
A 200 acre working farm situated at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the heart of Washington, DC's Wine Country. Great Country Farms offers fresh produce, family fun, lovely event venues and children's programs throughout the season.
A special highlight is picking up your own family of baby chicks or “peeps” to raise and keep or return to the farm to join the laying hens. Kate Zurschmeide explains, “Our chickens are free range and eat all the bugs in the gardens. Raising your own peeps inspires kids to wonder about farming and experience the fun without the long term commitment to having a hen house in the back yard.” Advance Peep orders are required and are $25+tx (see details below).
Included in the general admission price are many farm attractions like the animal barnyard with new baby animals including kids (baby goats) and Elmer the pot-belly pig. Children love the 5 acre play area featuring unique attractions like the giant jumping pillow; pedal carts, rope mazes and more. Live music by Nathaniel Davis accompanies both days’ festivities. Other available attractions include a ride on the cow train and wine-tastings at neighboring Bluemont Vineyard where you can relax with a glass and enjoy the remarkable view.
