“Feed the Farm” is back; our annual crowdsourcing campaign to help us to maintain our farm animal program. Now in its 4th year, this campaign goes a long way toward covering our animal program costs; feed, transport, bedding, housing and other essential care. The Farm believes in the value of keeping farm animals in the public eye; for education, interpretation and enjoyment. We also believe in the importance of spreading awareness of these animals’ natural behaviours and personalities. This is made possible be ensuring access to adequate space and fresh air, play and stimulation, comfortable quarters, optimum nutrition and the company of their own kind. Funds raised through this program enable us to continue to build this awareness. All proceeds directly support our animal program and invest in its betterment. Click here to visit our Read More →
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.
Join us at the Farm Museum as our little flock of Miriam, Leila and Sooty lose their thick wooly winter coats! Shearer Peter Kozier will be demonstrating both traditional and modern shearing methods. You can watch the process as it happens, ask questions and afterwards enjoy a visit on the Farm! Shearing sessions will be happening at 11am and again at 1pm. This event takes place rain or shine inside our main barn. This event is by donation to support the Farm. Read More →
