Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead

April is an exciting time for thousands of families in the metro area as Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead opens once again!

The Farmstead is so many things: petting zoo (more than 200 animals, including peacocks, goats, pigs, pygmy goats, rabbits and geese), “working” farm, living history and outdoor adventures all rolled into one. Learning how to milk a cow in the dairy barn, writing on the slate boards in the one-room schoolhouse, mining for gold or relaxing in the beautiful butterfly garden are just a few of the things to keep your little ones active and entertained. For just a $3 admission, it’s a great way to keep the whole family entertained on a budget.

Additional attractions and activities include (and these are just a few):

  • wagon rides
  • fishing
  • pony rides
  • barn slides
  • playgrounds

Plus lots of places to duck in and get a taste of what life was like in Kansas back in time, including a blacksmith’s shop, Indian encampment, ice cream parlor, and more! We recommend keeping a few quarters on hand so you can buy fish and goat food – my kids would happily feed the animals for hours if we let them. There are a wide variety of other fee-based activities as well, which you can purchase individually as you go, or buy a $13 combo pack, which includes mining, one wagon ride, one pony ride, one bottle of milk for the baby goats and fishing.

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead is open daily, 9am-5pm, April 1 to Oct. 31. Admission is $3/person until 2pm, with free admission after 2pm. Children 2 & under are free. The best part about it, you can have a different adventure each time you visit! Keep watching our events calendar for upcoming special events happening at the Farmstead.
