Welcome To The Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum

The Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum is a community museum dedicated to preserving and interpreting Cole Harbour's agricultural past, and to developing an understanding of plants, animals and farming today. It is owned and operated by the Cole Harbour Rural Heritage Society, a registered charity which relies heavily on community support, volunteers and donations. ADMISSION IS BY DONATION so plan to come often and reconnect with your rural roots!

The farm museum will reopen on Friday, May 15 for the 2015 season.


Help Feed the Animals & Enrich Your Community


In the month leading up to our opening we are running a crowdfunding campaign to give the community the chance to directly fund the animals you love. A donation as small as $5 or $10 will help up feed one of our calves for a day or one of our chickens for a whole month, respectively.

In just a week we’ve managed to raise 10% of our goal, and with your help we hope to get all the way to 100%

You can view our Fundraising campaign here.

If you are unable to donate you can still help by sharing this campaign by spreading the word! We’re even hosting a contest on our Facebook page where you can win $20 to the Rose and Kettle Tea Room simply by sharing our fundraiser on your Facebook page.

10th Annual Dinner and Auction Fundraiser

The 10th Annual Dinner & Auction Fundraiser was a resounding success! A huge thank you to all of our devoted supporters who braved the weather and filled Brightwood Golf and Country Club to capacity once again. Early projections suggest we hit (and surpassed) our $25,000 goal! Special thanks to Scotiabank who joined the event for a 5th straight year, contributing $5000 in matching funds; to WestJet who donated our fabulous raffle prize of two round trip tickets anywhere WestJet flies; to Wilsons Security who were one of our Gold Sponsors and also stepped up with $1000 in direct cost offsets for the Farm Museum; and to all of our Corporate Sponsors who have enabled us to launch our 2015 season.

You can learn more about our fantastic 2015 sponsors on our sponsor page.
