Every spring Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill expands its  “farmily” with the arrival of new baby animals. This year the Village is celebrating these new arrivals  with special Saturday events. These events are designed for families to get outside, have fun and  make memories.

  • Easter Egg Hunts are returning to the Village on Saturday, March 30 for kids ages 12 and under. Egg hunters will search for the golden prize egg while collecting candy along the way. In addition to the  hunt, guests will meet baby farm animals, make crafts and take a pony ride. Food trucks will be on hand and the Shaker Village Bar will be open for adults. Purchase tickets in advance online for $8 – $16, ages two and under can participate for free.
  • Make your Easter weekend complete by joining us for your Easter Sunday meal at The Trustees’  Table on March 31 from 11:30 a.m.-7:00 p.m. You’ll have an entrée choice and a selection of  homemade desserts. A children’s menu is also available. Reservations are required and may be  made online or by calling 859.734.5411.
  • Family Farm Days and Brunch with the Babies will be held on Saturday, April 6, 13 and 20. The  Family Farm Days portion of the event runs from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. with the purchase of a daily  admission ticket, free-$16, onsite at the Welcome Center. Guests will meet lambs, kids, chicks,  piglets, calves and many more baby animals. The event will also include activity stations, sheep  shearing, hay wagon rides, a hay bale pyramid, scavenger hunt, pony rides and other surprises.
  • Guests looking to include food with their experience won’t be disappointed. Tickets for Brunch with  the Babies at The Trustees’ Table restaurant are available ranging from free to $33. This popular  kid-friendly brunch buffet or continental breakfast includes admission to Family Farm Days.  Additional food options will be available onsite at a grab-and-go breakfast stand, and takeaway  sandwiches, salads, chips and sweets will be on offer at the Post Office Shop.
  • In April, spend time with the newest Shaker farm animals by learning about their bedtime  rituals at Bedtime with the Babies. Guests will gather in the barn from 6-7:00 p.m. with a warm  drink to hear a bedtime story as the animals get ready to be tucked into bed.
