The Friends of the Farmstead (FOF) was established in 1996 as the not-for-profit group which would help raise funds for future projects and programs at Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead. FOF operates as part of the Arts and Recreation Foundation of Overland Park, Kansas. Examples of major funded projects include: Helen's Country School, The Dairy Barn, the Main Entrance, Vic's General Store, Alex and Emily's Ice Cream Parlor, Ben's Bank and most recently Pat's Photography Parlor, Ray's Barbershop and John's Blacksmith Shop.
Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead
Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead was established in 1978 to depict a turn of the century farm. 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. Get information about our location, hours and activities.
The Friends of the Farmstead have a variety of Tribute & Donor Opportunities available throughout the Farmstead including sponsoring swings and benches, butterfly house donations, a sunflower wall, and personalized bricks on the Kansas Farm Trail.
To support the many activities and attractions of the Farmstead, FOF has established a volunteer program with many fun and exciting opportunities. For more information, visit our volunteer page.

Every October we transform the Farmstead into a fun-filled, yet eerily spooky place. Our 20th annual Night of the Living Farm takes place after dark with lanterns and jack O'lanterns lighting the way. This event features scary and non-scary activities for all.
A festive holiday light display showcasing pictures, animations and sparkling effects all synchronized to music and viewed from the warmth of your car.
