What is the Historic Eidem Farm?
The Historic Eidem Farm is a 19 acre living history farm telling the story of market farming in Brooklyn Park during the 1905-1920 era. Visitors can experience the Farm through programs, events, tours, and seasonal rental opportunities.
The Eidem Farm works to create a welcoming, inspiring, and vibrant public space for people to enjoy the outdoors, learn about Brooklyn Park’s market farming history, celebrate the shared heritage of agriculture, and to make connections between our history, our present, and our future.
Eidem Master Plan:
In 2018 the Brooklyn Park Recreation and Parks Department completed, and city council approved, a 10-year master plan, estimated at a total of $8 million dollars, for the Historic Eidem Farm. As part of the $26 million Park Bond Referendum that was passed in 2018, $1.4 million is slotted for work on the Historic Eidem Farm. Though noticeable changes other than the farm’s name may be slow to come, there is a lot of work being done behind the scenes in moving the master plan forward.
