There’s a little farm in the middle of Parma and you should visit it

Stearns Homestead, the last working, educational farm in Parma, Ohio.

This isn’t another story about the urban farming trend, what happens at Stearns Homestead has been happening there since the 1800s when Lyman Stearns settled in northeast Ohio. The Greek revival style farmhouse sits on acres now owned by the City of Parma purchased with the help of federal funds and operated by the Parma Historical Society. As the suburb grew the farm remained unchanged (with the exception of adding a few buildings) now Stearns Homestead, the last working, educational farm in Parma, Ohio and continues to offer a historic and hands-on experience for all ages.

 

Admission is free.

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