Alpaca brunch

Founded more than fifty years ago, Colonial Gardens (27610 E. Wyatt Road, Blue Springs) used to just be known as a nursery and gardening store, but over the years, it has transformed to also include a farm-to-table kitchen serving rotating menu items, a curated market selling local goods and sustainably sourced products, and orchard and bramble patches for folks to handpick seasonal fruits. 

Now, Colonial Gardens is also offering a unique dining experience—with alpacas. 

This fun farm experience allows guests to enjoy an intimate brunch surrounded by apple trees in the orchard, along with the opportunity to meet the alpacas and learn about Colonial Gardens’ care for these special creatures.

The picnic includes tailored brunch boxes for adults and children made with fresh items from Colonial’s garden, orchard and market, along with spectacular views of alpacas, of course.

GO: June 10 and 24. Colonial Gardens.
