•  Spring Fling & Egg Hunt - Gilchrist Farm's Spring Fling & Egg Hunt connects you and your crew to a wholesome day in nature - and memories that will last a lifetime.
Cuddle baby animals like goats, chicks and piglets, create cute spring crafts, take a picture with the Easter Bunny (And real bunnies!), ride the little farm train, take a wagon ride, learn how to throw an ax, shoot arrows, explore the Giant Slide and much more. And whatever you do: book your egg hunt tickets now! Egg hunts are held at 10am, 12pm and 2pm and are divided by age groups so that every child has an opportunity to find treat-filled eggs. You can select the difficulty level that's the best fit for your child - from eggs that are in plain sight to ones that are almost fully hidden. The egg hunt draws families from all over Los Angeles County, so book your reservations now - it often sells out.
