Eidem Homestead is a ten-acre living history farm that was restored to the period 1890 – 1910. Homesteaded over a century ago, the Eidem family owned the farm for 82 years.
Today, the farm is like a time machine, transporting you back to the turn of the 20th Century when Brooklyn Park was one of the nation’s top potato growing areas.
We invite you to tour our beautifully restored Victorian house, visit the barn, outbuildings and farm animals. You may smell the delicious apple cake baking in the kitchen, help pump water for the garden, turn the handle on the wringer washing machine, make apple cider in the autumn or put cloves in oranges to make fragrant pomander balls for Christmas. Or just sit on the porch and let yourself drift back in time.
At Eidem Homestead, “don’t touch” becomes, “look, listen, taste, smell and touch.”
