Life on the Farm

By Linda Tancs

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead in Overland Park, Kansas depicts a bygone era.  The 12-acre property, designed to depict a turn-of-the-century family farm, has almost 200 animals, vegetable and flower gardens, a one-room schoolhouse and more.  Re-named in 1985 in honor of a police officer killed in the line of duty, the aim of the farmstead is to preserve the traditions of the Kansas family farm, a way of life fast disappearing.  Children can enjoy the experience of bottle feeding baby goats, milking a cow and taking a horse drawn wagon ride through the woods.  The facility opens for the season on 1 April.  Reservations are accepted for parties and tours.
