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 interact, feed an learn about the livestock on a regular basis.

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 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 adoptee. They will also have their name added to the adoption board for all to see. 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.
