Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead opens for the season April 1

Make endless memories with friends, family and more than 250 animals and birds as Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead opens for the season on Saturday, April 1. Explore the Farmstead’s newest features and return to the many farm favorites.

Your ticket offers access to many attractions, including petting pens, animal exhibits and the Dairy Barn, featuring a new calf born in March. Travel back in time and immerse yourself in history when you visit Ben’s Bank, Helen’s Schoolhouse, John’s Blacksmith Shop and the Kanza Indian Encampment. 

Transform into a butterfly by posing for a photo with the Farmstead’s new butterfly wings sculptures in the Butterfly Garden. While strolling the nature trails, make sure to check out the new tree identification markers to learn about the tree species planted on the Farmstead. The markers were designed and installed as part of an Eagle Scout Project completed by Overland Park local Matt Wu. 

Try your hand at fishing in the pond, enjoy a wagon ride pulled by a team of Belgian draft horses or bottle-feed one of more than 40 baby goats for additional fees. The Farmstead also features multiple party corrals available to rent for celebrating your special occasions.
