Facilities and capacity

The old bank barn is an ideal space to host your wedding. The interior is beautifully furnished with hand hewn beams, rustic wood floors, and sunlight streaming in through the barnboard. New wheelchair accessable washrooms facilities were added to the interior of the barn in 2017! Because the barn is not able to be heated or cooled, wedding bookings are only available from mid-May through to the end of October. Capacity is 180 for ceremony and reception. A stage, updated electrical, and additional decorative options are available for use.

    Beautiful venue and excellent customer service

    My fiance and I were so excited to hold our wedding at Steckle. After seeing the beautiful barn, we were sold! We unfortunately had to postpone our May 2020 wedding to May 2021, and now unfortunately due to covid we have had to cancel. Steckle was amazing throughout the process, from helping with planning resources, recommended vendors, and when it came to rescheduling and having to cancel. We were fully refunded and their customer service team is top notch! Thanks to Linnea and Heather for all your help. We wish we could have gotten married at this gorgeous farm!

    Lovely wedding venue

    Steckle Farm was absolutely perfect for our wedding. The farm has beautiful grounds and the barn is a lovely rustic space for a reception. Linnea was extremely accommodating and easy to communicate with and made it very easy for us to enjoy our day.

    Linnea and her team were amazing! The venue is the perfect backdrop for any outdoor wedding, it's beautiful. Because this venue was so naturally stunning we didn't need to spend time on point decor, and were instead able to add very unique pieces that brought our dream to life!

    Steckle Heritage Farm's reply:

    Aww, Meagan! Thank you!! You and R are my kinda people. :) Come back and visit us a million more times!

    When originally contacting Steckle we heard back fairly quickly and were able to book a tour of the facilities. It was a little difficult to coordinate as we were out of town and you cannot go on the weekends, but we understood this is due to the amount of events they have on the weekends. Linnea was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. She gave us a lot of helpful information, including that Steckle works with several preferred caterers, and has several policies due to it being a heritage site. We were happy with the price of the venue, and liked that a portion of the cost was a donation toward Steckle’s programs. The grounds were very clean and well kept. The orchard where we got married was beautiful and the barn was breathtaking with the string lights. In the summer it does get fairly hot in there, so I advise that you bring several fans with you. Though it is fairly close to a busy road, it still feels like a secluded farm and you almost forget how close you are to the road. We couldn’t have imagined our wedding day anywhere else except this gorgeous venue. Definitely recommended.

    Amazing team and beautiful property

    We were so happy working with Chris and the team at Steckle. Not only were they incredibly flexible but they also recognized how special of a day it was and made sure to do anything they could to reduce our stress.

    The orchard and the barn were beautiful and our guests really enjoyed being able to spend some time with the animals.

    We could not have had our wedding anywhere else. Steckle was absolutely beautiful for our big day and Linnea was such a dream to work with. They offer a gorgeous space at an extremely competitive price and we would recommend them to anyone!

    This venue was AMAZING! Rustic, original, timeless and reasonably priced. If i could go back in time i'd do it all again at the same location. You will not be disappointed, plus you have the entire farm (not sharing with other weddings) LOVE STECKLE

    Linnea and team at Steckle are amazing. We worked closely with them and our vendors to make sure we respected the venue as it means a great deal to us and the work that they do for the community! Steckle as a not-for-profit organization is essential in educating our future generations about agriculture, sustainability and responsible farming.

    From Day One when we fell in love with the venue, we had grand plans to bring exotic animals, gelato truck and a photobooth to the venue, all which Steckle allowed us to do - with detailed plans and instructions. Our dream wedding was everything we could've imagined it could be and more! The apple orchard was in bloom during our May wedding and the heritage barn where our primary reception space was beautiful and all of our guests complimented us on a beautiful venue.

    The washroom facilities were adequate (after all we were outside in a barn!) and they made an extra effort to rent an additional washroom for the wedding season really made a difference for our guests.

    Our communication with Steckle was straightforward and always prompt. Linnea and her team always had our questions answered and made coordinating with them so easy. Of all of the aspects of our wedding, our venue was one of the most important to us - and Steckle delivered it all and more. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect day. Thank you!
