Steckle Heritage Farm is a charitable organization that provides the residents of the Region of Waterloo with educational and recreational opportunities related to Ontario’s agricultural traditions.
Welcome to the Farm in the City!
Settled in 1833 by John and Esther (Bleams) Steckle, Steckle Heritage Farm has been designated a heritage property by the City of Kitchener and has been operating as a non-profit organization since 1988. We are an urban farm, education centre, and unique space for weddings and events.
