Each year, Strom’s Farm partners with recognized charities to help raise funds.  Not only does this help important non-profit organizations, it has also increased the visibility of agri-tourism at the farm.  A corn maze is themed each year to the chosen charity and with a series of clues, visitors are educated about the charity while making their way through the maze.  Since 2005, Strom’s has raised more than $18,000 for charities, has distributed more than 500 shoe boxes (filled with different items such as toys, educational supplies and toiletries ) through Operation Christmas Child,  and has helped to decrease Guelph’s Big Brother/Big Sister waiting list.
