Yesterday I took my little one on a Hayride to Bunnyland at Linvilla Orchards and it was beautiful. Breezy, sunny, a little on the cool side and totally not crowded. They have two adorable little baby lambs and many new little chicks for kids to see in addition to the usual wonderfulness that is their little animal area and playground. I just can’t recommend a trip to Linvilla enough… No, I do not work for them or get any kick-backs. Just happen to love the place. If you go, Hayrides to Bunnyland tickets are $8.
