How is it possible that there is livestock at a farm just a mere 12 miles out of downtown Cleveland! It is! It’s Stearns Homestead, a historic farm in Parma that is home to over 65 farm animals for visitors to see and interact with.
Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau and Stearns Homestead have partnered to provide an educational farm field trip for classrooms, day care groups, and other youth groups to visit the farm and learn about livestock, agriculture and where their food comes from.
Farm Bureau members and farmhands provide a guided farm tour approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours that includes an opportunity for students and/or other groups to see and learn about the goats, sheep, horses, pigs, ducks, chickens, turkeys, geese and bunnies that live at the farm along with feed for the animals prior to the end of their visit.
There is a farm tour fee and a minimum group size of 10 to schedule a farm tour, Monday to Friday, daylight hours.
Email Stearns Homestead to indicate your interest, and a farmhand volunteer will contact you and set your date for your classroom/group farm tour.
