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.

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.
