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 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 is open seven days a week from May 15 to October 15. Throughout the winter months we are open by appointment for research, resources and enquiries.
Planning for our 13th Annual Dinner & Auction is underway! This event provides much of the core funds needed to support the upcoming operating season of the Farm Museum; to grow our gardens, to care for our farm animals, to provide learning opportunities for children, work experience for youth – generally to make the Farm come to life.
The auction is run entirely by community volunteers. These volunteers plan the event, collect auction items, sell tickets, seek out corporate sponsorships, and raise approximately $25,000 for the Farm Museum! Would you like to join our auction committee? Do you have an item you wish to contribute? Are you interested in a sponsorship opportunity? Please send us a message or call the Farm Museum at 902-434-0222.
2018 Sponsorships confirmed thus far; thank you!
