Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead

category : Zoos
Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead At the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead visitors enjoy feeding farm animals, taking a hayride on a horse-drawn wagon, fishing in the pond and walking through a replica of an early 1900s farmhouse. If you are a gardening enthusiast, don't miss the Johnson County Master Gardener exhibit.

The farmstead is eight acres of family fun and entertainment. Designed to depict a turn-of-the-century farm, the Farmstead includes a petting zoo, a silo with slides, a 'tot-lot' for the younger children, a farmhouse, and picture-box gardens.

A Farm would not be complete without all the animals that live there. Every farm animal imaginable can be found throughout the area. Each spring, visitors come to enjoy being entertained by the newborn babies with their playful antics and eagerness to drink from bottles.

Bluefeather, the Farmstead bison, and her sidekick, Tex the Longhorn, are popular attractions for children. The Farmstead houses five different species of birds of prey including the golden eagle and red tailed hawk. Each year new arrivals join the petting zoo. Our mother "Fainting" goat, Almond Joy, continues to bless the Farmstead with her babies each year. Of course, everyone has fun following the Farmstead's traditional baby naming contest.

In addition to its old-fashioned attractions, visitors enjoy the modern conveniences of a concession stand and picnic area.
