Welcome to Stearns Farm

Come spend an afternoon at Stearns Homestead, the last working, educational farm in Parma, Ohio. This forty eight acre farm has lots of animals – always a favorite with the children – as well as several historic museum houses and a Yankee barn, loaded with antiques and historic items.

We also have a country store and a Farmers Market throughout the summer and fall, where you can purchase homestead and locally grown produce, products made from goat’s milk, local honey, baked goods and much more. Be sure to come early; our farm fresh eggs go quickly!

So, whether you’re a history buff, a teacher, parent or grandparent looking for a kid friendly fun and educational activity, come experience a slice of old fashioned farm life.

Stearns Homestead is FREE!

  1. We rent the cabin for parties, but you make your own party. Unfortunately, we are booked solid for the rest of this season.

  2. My daughter is a Senior at Normandy High. She is 18 yrs old and is looking to do about 25 hours of volunteer work . Do you have anything now and if yes , how to we register. Thank you

  3. Have we responded to your request? I apologize if not – we can always use help and specifically looking to clean out the goat and sheep barn before the snow flies.
    If your daughter and her friends are interested, let us know via email… Thanks!! PAHS

  4. Do you have to join the Homestead Hoofers to volunteer on the farm if you are a middle school or high school student?

  5. we are only open on weekends, however you are welcome to stop by during the week to visit – please do not bring any food for the animals

  6. Hi Tiffany –
    We will get back to you closer to when we open on weekends. Or stop in the first part of May so we can get you scheduled.


  7. We ask that all volunteers are 18 years or older unless accompanied by and working along side a parent. Exceptions are made for high school students requiring community service, however, they do not work directly with the farm animals – but we always have farm work to do.
    Send an email to if interested.
