About The Farmstead

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead was established in 1978 to depict a turn of the century farm in Kansas. The Farmstead has nearly 250 animals and birds of prey, vegetable and flower gardens, a one-room schoolhouse, an old-time fishing pond, pony rides, and much more.  Activities, attractions, and programs are provided April 1 through October 31 in a 12-acre educational farm environment that cultivates an appreciation of farm life, wildlife, and Kansas Heritage. 

Learn more about the history and namesake of the Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead.

Visit the City of Overland Park’s website for all information on attractions, programs, rentals, and more.


The Farmstead's mission is to connect guests to the history and heritage of early 1900's Kansas. Visitors of all ages interact with animals, mine for gemstones, bottle-feed pygmy goats, and watch a live milking demonstration. Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead is a place to make family memories.
