Donate to the Steckle Heritage Farm

You Can Help!

Steckle Heritage Farm is maintained and operated by the J. Steckle Heritage Homestead Charity which was established in 1989 by Dr. Jean Steckle. As a charity, we depend on our program revenues, facility rentals and support from donors just like you! By doing this, you help to maintain the farm as a welcoming, active place that engages the community in connecting with agriculture, food production, and the region’s cultural heritage.

You can donate directly to Steckle Heritage Farm using our Canada Helps Impact page.

Do you have a favorite animal that you wish you could spoil? Is there a program at the farm near and dear to your heart? You can make a more tangible difference on the farm using our Amazon Wishlist.

Thank you so much for your support!
