The Rose and Kettle

The Rose & Kettle Tearoom has closed for the season, but we now have kitchen favourites, such as scones, biscuits, and a weekly soup, available through the Fall and Winter via our online store. Orders open on Mondays each week, and close on Thursday at noon. Pick-Up for online orders is every Friday between noon and 4pm. Check it out in our Online Shop!

Our Farm Animals

The museum partners with area farms each year to bring in a small selection of traditional livestock from May to October. This generally includes sheep, poultry, pigs, and calves. A few of the animals are mature and rejoin us each year while others arrive as new spring babies who will grow up with us over the season. Where possible we bring in traditional and heritage breeds, typical of what would have been kept in Cole Harbour over the last 100 years.

What's happening around the Farm?

The Farm Museum hosts a variety of special events throughout the season featuring seasonal foods, local music, heritage activities and of course, family fun on the farm! Check out our events page for full details.

Groups and Guided Visits

Guided visits may be arranged in advance by contacting the museum. We offer tours for a variety of groups and interests (a small fee applies for all guided or staff-assisted visits). Groups numbering 12 or more MUST be accompanied by a museum guide to ensure the safety of visitors, animals and collections. Please contact us in advance at 902-434-0222 to make reservations. The Farm Museum reserves the right to ask an unannounced group to return on another day when proper guiding arrangements can be made.
