A sure sign of Spring: Easter on the farm at the Canada Agriculture Museum
OTTAWA, March 28, 2013 – Spring is knocking at the barn doors, and the Canada Agriculture Museum (CAgM) is once again teeming with activity for the Easter long week-end, so come join us for this celebration of nature’s renewal.
After a long winter, the barns have come alive with the arrival of newborn animals. Come welcome the soft little lambs, marvel at the rabbits’ silky fur and observe the fluffy newly-hatched chicks from up close.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without eggs. Come perform some « eggs-periments » to learn how to tell if an egg is fresh or not, cooked or raw. Children six and under won’t want to miss the famous Easter egg hunt, while the older ones can be on the lookout for the « Signs of Spring » around the farm.
Come learn how to make hot cross buns, a traditional Easter bread, in the demonstration kitchen, and learn about other traditional Easter breads around the world. See if you can resist tasting those hot buns straight out of the oven.
