Frequently Asked Questions

Do you supply food and decorations?

Steckle Heritage Farms does not supply any food, plates, cutlery, or decoration. We do ask NO NUTS as we are a nut-aware facility to keep our future visitors safe!

We love to compost and recycle, so please keep that in mind when choosing your snacks!

My child is only 3. Can parents of her friends stay for the party?

Yes, within reason We allow ONE adult per child participant to stay for the party when participating children are 4 and under without additional fees.

How big can our party be?

We have learned that we have the most fun with moderately sized parties. For this reason, we have a max of 18 children per party, so things run smoothly.

For larger groups of over 12 we will require extra staff on site. An extra charge will be added to cover the cost.

What if it rains or is really hot or is really cold?

We run rain AND shine! Advise your guests to dress for the weather, and have no fear! You will be based out of the kitchen, classroom, and barn.

If the weather is not cooperative we simply adjust accordingly and use the barn for games! We promise you will have fun, no matter the weather!

What is the Cancellation Policy?

For birthday parties, $25 will be held upon cancellation with at least 14 days’ notice.

If a party is cancelled with less than 14 days’ notice, no refund will be issued.

What if I have to reschedule my birthday party?

If the birthday party is rescheduled less than 14 days prior to the party there will be a $25 fee collected before the party can be moved.
