Sponsor an Animal

Stearns Homestead is home to over 75 animals, including poultry, horses, goats, and more.  While many of our animals are permanent residents, the forty-eight acre farm is an operational farm, raising some livestock for market and products for sale. 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 (sponsor) one, or more, of their farm favorites for a full year.  ‘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.

Annual adoption for each animal:

  • Rabbits  $20.00   – entire bunny barn  $100.00
  • Ducks  $20.00  – flock of ducks  $45.00
  • Red Burbon Heritage Turkeys  $20.00
  • Chickens  $20.00  –  hen house $65.00
  • Goose  – gaggle of geese $40.00
  • Cats  $20.00   –    cat club $50.00
