Eidem Homestead is a working historical farm on ten acres in Brooklyn Park. The farm, property and home have all been restored to the period 1890-1910. Families can visit the Victorian house, as well as the farm and its animals for educational and hands-on experiences of life on the farm between 1905-1920. Volunteers keep the farm running, baking in the kitchen, working in the garden and on the laundry and caring for the farm. They also have seasonal activities.

Visiting Eidem Farm with Kids

One thing we particularly enjoy about Eidem historical farm over some of the other historical homesteads in the area, is their motto: At Eidem Homestead, “don’t touch” becomes, “look, listen, taste, smell and touch.”

At Eidem Homestead, “don’t touch” becomes, “look, listen, taste, smell and touch.”

When we visited, I sat down and played the piano; we climbed up into the children’s bedrooms and played with toys; and we helped with various ‘chores’ around the farm.

There are picnic tables in the yard for visitors who want to bring a lunch. Since Eidem Farm is in Brooklyn Park, grocery stores are easy to find on the way. Family-friendly features include a small nature playground and secret garden hidden behind the house, kids riding tractors, farm animals that kids can sometimes help feed and historic buildings to explore. Pack a picnic and spend an afternoon in this quaint farmstead.
