Parma Homestead Hoofers Youth Group

The Homestead Hoofers youth group will learn about Parma’s agricultural history while learning farm animal care. Members are assigned a farm animal and learn nutrition, grooming and facts about that particular farm animal throughout the year.  The club begins in March and runs through November with a monthly meeting at the Homestead.  Youth group members will be asked to adhere to the following requirements:

  • Participant must have attained 8 years of age by January 1st of the year applying for membership.
  • Participant must come to the Homestead to care for their assigned animal a minimum of three nights per week- no exception.
  • Participant must attend/assist at Homestead special events, Homestead fundraiser and  community service project(s).
  • A $10.00 yearly Parma Area Historical Society (PAHS) youth family membership fee is required.
  • A first year fee of $25.00 is required- a t-shirt and project book is provided.  No other fee is required unless participant changes animal selection – then new book is required.
  • Animals are assigned according to participant ability and animal availability.

A youth group orientation meeting is usually held in February at the Homestead.  Open enrollment continues until April 30.
