Spring on the farm is filled with the excitement of new life, hands-on experiences, and wonderful photo ops.
There’s so much to do at Butterfield Acres, especially if your children love animals. Come for a visit with the goats, sheep, or bunnies.

Learning about animals through the seasons can offer valuable lessons for kids, from love and respect to interesting facts.

On Easter weekend, April 8 – 9, 2023, you can even visit the Easter Bunny!
