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. The Cole Harbour Heritage Farm seeks to actively involve the public in awareness and protection of our natural and cultural resources and foster appreciation and respect for community - past, present, and future. 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 has now closed for the 2020 season, however, we are always available for enquiries, research and resources.
2020 Student-Created Promotional Video – 2020 may have meant reduced operations for the Farm Museum but it definitely did not hamper the enthusiasm and inspiration of staff. In fact, an incredible team of young people, our 2020 summer students, took it upon themselves to create this touching promotional video for the site. Thank you to actors Makayla, Andrea, Krystalli and Conor and to video creator, writer and editor, Hermione.
We now have an online shop so that you may enjoy our kitchen treats year round! Scones, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, and soups are now available for purchase, as well as a selection of our local gift shop items. Place your order by Thursday at noon and pick-up on Friday, between 12-4pm at the main door of Harris House (Rose and Kettle Tearoom). See our shop page by clicking the drop down menu on the top right corner of our homepage. Read More →

We’re very excited to announce that our wooly and feathered friends will be ‘actors’ in several episodes of Chapelwaite, a new television show based on Stephen King’s work! The Farm, along with several other sites in the community, are being used as sets for the film. It has been a very exciting time this past week! Read More →
This Thursday, August 27th, we will be closed to the public for another day of filming. We apologize for the late notice and inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and for cheering us on during this exciting time! Read More →
