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 reopens on Sunday, May 15 for the 2016 season! Throughout the winter months we are open by appointment for research, resources and enquiries.
Our 11th Annual Dinner & Auction at Brightwood Golf and Country Club was a huge success!
Thank you so much to all of the donors and businesses who stepped up to support the 2016 season at the Farm Museum. Special thanks to the team at Scotiabank Westphal for their substantial contribution of time and matching funds and to WestJet for their fabulous flight package. To all of our volunteers who make the event possible – these individuals give up much of their spring for this event – your dedication is remarkable. And thank you also to the attendees who bid generously on the night. All of you made the event our most profitable ever!
