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 farm animal.

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 an ‘adoptive parent’ appreciation day to visit with your farm friend(s) on a personal level.  Of course, you are always welcome to stop by more often and visit your adopted animal.

If you prefer, you can  request to be billed every month to make a monthly donation for your adopted animal.
