Meadowbrooke Gourds Annual Gourd Egg Hunt will be held on April 15th with a rain date of April 22nd. We will be holding 3 hunts at 11:00 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:00 pm. Each hunt will last one hour and is limited to 400 people.

How it works

There will be 2,000 dyed gourd eggs along with 21 prize eggs in each hunt. All participants will be limited to 5 gourd eggs and, if you’re lucky, 1 prize gourd egg. Please be courteous to your fellow hunters and only keep the allowable number of eggs.  You must register each person who wishes to hunt and keep eggs. Those that are just helping do not need to pay the fee. Our hunts fill up very quickly (normally within 24 hours) so start talking to family and friends now so when it opens, you already have a plan.

Who can hunt?

One big question we get is, can adults hunt too? Our answer is that this is more of an adult hunt with kid’s helping. The eggs are not easily seen, considering you are normally walking in 6″ winter wheat. So yes, this is a hunt for all ages. Please remember you are on a farm and especially during the early hunt, the wheat can be wet from dew, so boots may be a good idea.

We will be collecting a donation of $5.00 per person to participate in our egg hunt. This donation is nonrefundable, and $5.00 of each ticket will be donated to Upper Frankford Fire Company. When you check in for the Egg hunt, you will receive a $5.00 coupon for a purchase of $25.00 or more in our retail store, valid only on the day of the egg hunt.
