Adopt an Animal

Stearns Homestead is home to over 75 animals, including poultry, horses, goats, and more. The forty-eight acre farm is an operational farm, raising livestock for market and products for sale. Visitors are encouraged to learn about, interact, and feed  our farm animals.

In order for our animal residents to enjoy their homes, they rely on kind friends, members, volunteers and visitors for support. This includes proud “parents” who adopt a special farm friend.

For a small  fee anyone can adopt one, or more, of their farm favorites for a full year.  New parents will receive a certificate of adoption and a photo of their adopted animal.  During the year Stearns Homestead will host a special appreciation day.  At this event parents will have the opportunity to interact with their farm friends on a personal level.  Of course, you are always welcome to stop by more often and visit your adopted animal.
