Steckle Heritage Farm is a heritage designated property owned and operated as a charity providing educational and recreational programs to youth and families within the community. By renting our beautiful bank barn for your event, you are helping us to maintain the facility and continue to offer unique and quality programs to youth in our community.
The beautiful property at Steckle Heritage Farm is comprised of 10.2 acres where the original buildings, barn and crops are located. Our well-lit parking lot is 5 acres of land deeded to us by the City of Kitchener.
Our original bank barn dates back to 1840. It is breathtaking to enter as you look up at the glorious post and beam construction all done with hand hewn logs. The sunlight streams through the barnboard as the sun sets in the west, enhancing the rustic charm of this barn. As it is an original barn, located on a unique HERITAGE DESIGNATED SITE it is not heated or cooled.
Weddings are booked from mid-May to the end of September. Saturday weddings have a minimum of 100 guests, and maximum of 160 seated. Fridays and Sundays are open to your more intimate events, with under 100 guests.
We work exclusively with TWO hand selected caterers that will give you a wide range of culinary options. Bar services must be booked through our caterers, due to insurance and liability. We are so pleased to work with BINGEMANS and LITTLE MUSHROOM CATERING to help make your day one for the history books. All catering and bar services must be provided by one of these two providers.
Our 2017 season is now completely FULL! We are SO looking forward to being a small part of your happily ever afters!
**Dates are very limited for 2018!**
(will begin booking for 2019 in Mid June of 2017)
Please Join us for our informal (totally no pressure) 2017 Bridal Open House on Friday April 28th from 1-4pm, and Saturday April 29th from 4-7pm. Please note that weekend tours are not available at any other time, so if you have a limited schedule as we do, this is your chance to take your time and see the farm! Both Bingemans and Little Mushroom will be here to chat about catering options, and Linnea will be available to do short tours, answer questions, and help you with your decisions! No need to RSVP, just find a time that works during the open house, and we’ll see you here!
Please contact Linnea Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org
**We are NOT able to offer site tours or visits on weekends, as the space is held privately by those that have rented it for their weddings and events. Thank you for understanding!
Please note that we are first and foremost a not for profit educational working farm. Our office staff will always focus on children and families first. All rental fees go directly into the maintenance and operation of the farm by the charity. We are a registered non-profit educational farm focused on providing experiential learning opportunities to families, children and the community. Your support and understanding is appreciated!
