Brodhead Farm, also known as the Brodhead-Heller Farm and "Wheat Plains," is a historic home located in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area at Lehman Township, Pike County, Pennsylvania. The farmhouse dates to the late-18th to early-19th century, and is a large 2 1/2-story, clapboard sided dwelling. It has a slate covered gable roof with dormers. The oldest section is of log construction and it was added on numerous times over the succeeding years. Also on the property are a variety of modern barns and farm outbuildings.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
