Spring into Springridge

We are ready to open for the 2011 season! April is one of the most exciting months at the farm: nice weather is on its way, pansies are blooming and baby chicks are peeping.

Opening day is Friday, April 8 and the barn will be brimming with seasonal and garden d├ęcor. After a long winter’s nap, anticipation is building for the first pie of the season.

Join us for a hopping good time on Easter weekend! We are celebrating Easter at our annual Easter Festival taking place on Good Friday, Saturday and Sunday (April 22, 23, 24). Activities include a meet and greet with the Easter Bunny, egg hunt, face-painting, ‘Peter Rabbit’s Eggcellent Easter Show’ professional puppet show, bunny ears to colour and wear, wagon ride and farm tour and access to the Fun Farm Yard.

We are also delighted to announce our new limited edition preserve, Royal Wedding Marmalade. The traditional orange marmalade includes a celebratory splash of champagne to toast the Royal Couple! We know the GTA has lots of Royal observers and we’ve gathered a list of must-have Springridge items for hosting your own Royal Wedding Par-tea on the big day:

Scone mix – A freshly baked scone is the staple to every proper tea party. This traditional British bread is a key component in Cream Tea (scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream). We offer a variety of scone mixes fit for a Queen!

Loyal Royal Biscuits – We are featuring an exclusive, hand-decorated Union Jack cookie! We’re pretty sure they serve these at Buckingham Palace…

Royal Tea – Why not invite William, Kate, Harry, Charles and Camilla to your event? We have tea bags featuring the Royal Family and other British icons available in our gift shop!

Regal China – Serve your partygoers on the finest china with our collection of Royal Wedding inspired mugs, plates and teapots!

Princess Tiara – Channel your best Kate Middleton and feel like a princess in your very own tiara. This is the perfect accessory to wear to a Royal Wedding Party and we have a beautiful selection in our Gift Loft.

Coffee Table Book – While you’re watching the wedding live on television, your guests can flip through the romantic book, “William & Kate: A Royal Love Story”. It’s better than a harlequin romance…it’s the greatest love story of the century!

Par-tea Favours – A jar of Royal Wedding Marmalade makes a wonderful parting gift. Your guests can re-live the memories of the wedding on their toast every morning.

The Fun Farm Yard welcomes royalty and commoners. See you soon!
