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 goats milk, local honey, baked goods and much more. Be sure to come early; our fresh eggs go quickly!

So, whether you’re a history buff, a teacher, parent or grandparent looking for a kid friendly fun and educational activities, come experience a slice of old fashioned farm life, right in your backyard!

Stearns Homestead is FREE!

Hours open to the public:

  • Saturday and Sunday 12 noon- 4:00 p.m.,
  • May through Mid-October
  • Special winter holiday events.

You can contact us by e-mail at StearnsHomestead@gmail.com. This e-mail address is checked at least once a week.
