Buds, blooms, and baby animals are awash at Buckley’s Maris Farms for the next several weekends.
This is the farm’s first foray into organizing springtime activities — normally, Maris Farms is only open to the public in the fall for their annual corn maze and haunted woods.
But the farm has recently been expanding its events, first with the September Sunflower Days, and now with its Baby Animals and Blooms Days.
The event is only on weekends, starting April 24 and 25, and continuing on May 1, 2, 8, and 9; hours are from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (although last entry is at 6 p.m.).
Baby Animals and Blooms Days will feature — obviously — a field of tulips for you to wander around in to enjoy the spring scene, and cut tulips will be available for purchase.
Flowers won’t be the only thing available to buy; a number of vendors, offering everything from smoked cheese to honey and yard art to glassblowing products, will also be at the farm.
Finally, a number of activities will be open for families and their young ones to enjoy together, like a low-height ropes course, a new “tot”-sized zipline, human Foosball, tube slides, and, of course, baby animals to pet.
Only online tickets are being offered at this time — ticket purchases are $14 for children (3-17 years of age) and $16 for adults, and can be bought at marisfarms.com/tulip-and-baby-animal-festival/.
Maris Farms has mostly gone cashless, so make sure you bring your debit or credit card to the event.
