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,  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.

  1. Yes – Chubbs is still with us. Glad to hear you enjoy the homestead and that your grandkids enjoy it as well.
    Hope you come back again soon.


  2. Hi there! What is the donkey’s name at the farm? We saw him last week and would like to “adopt” him. Also, is Chubbs doing okay? We haven’t seen him the last couple times we went. Thanks!

  3. Our farmers market has ended for this season. Our gardener, Dana, is working toready the gardens for winter and add organic nutrients to have the beds ready for planting next spring. We are hoping for a much better growing season in 2020 and look forward to seeing you back at our market next year. Thanks for supporting us, the homestead and the farm animals that depend on us. Thank you

  4. Hi. We rented the cabin last year for our family get together. 16 of us, I think there was. We all had a
    WONDERFUL time.! Even though it was cold and wet, the children AND adults alike enjoyed the animals and cabin. My question is, do u still have the “Apple Festival?”
    I remember being there in the fall. Totally enjoyed that.

  5. so sorry there was a delay in our response. Yes, we had our Fall Festival on October 12 & 13 with apples, apple cider, honey, pumpkins, hayrides and of course our farm animals, always ready for visitors!

  6. Hi Amy
    Our mini-donkey is Itty Bitty.. and we call her Bitty. Thanks for your interest in ‘adopting’ her… that information is on our website.
    Chubbs is doing quite well. His stall is in the big red barn. Next time you stop by if we have enough farmhands, we would be happy to take you into the barn for a visit with Chubbs.

  7. Hi Becky – so sorry we missed your message. We usually schedule a special event once every month. Sept was Farm City Days and October was Fall Festival. Nothing planned for November, however we will celebrate Christmas at the Farm on December 7 & 8 from 12 – 3 pm both days with Santa and family fun. Hope you can join us then.

  8. Has anyone read my 6 comments on the Parma historical society that I posted ln November,2019 about things I remember in Parma?
