Stearns Homestead



You Can Help!

Due to recent events at the homestead, we have established a GoFundMe to raise funds to install security cameras to keep watch over our farm animals.

Help us to preserve a small piece of Parma’s agricultural history.   Your time, talent, and generosity will help keep the homestead open for many generations to enjoy.
