Chewy joined our pygmy goat herd in January 2017. Chewy is a very friendly 6 year old and has become a ‘farm favorite’ with many of our visitors. You can find Chewy in the goat pen with Mork and Pete, the other two pygmy goats.
Stearns Homestead is managed by the Parma Area Historical Society with an all-volunteer crew of farmhands that provide daily feed, water and care for our farm animals, help with never-ending farm repairs, move the always-heaped manure pile and a variety of other tasks that are always in need of doing. In addition, we have volunteers who help in the two museum houses with tours and setting up displays, in the country store as store clerks and help out on weekends at the feed table and at special event activities.
Our volunteers are the best!
We can never say thank you enough times for all they do, sharing their time and talent to make Stearns Homestead a great place to visit and a comfortable home for the farm animals that reside here.
Stearns Homestead Farmers Market for the 2017 season is accepting vendor applications.

Not sure you fit our market criteria, contact our market manager, Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (440) 882-6234 for more information and vendor application.
