Old Sturbridge Village (OSV) is seeking a full-time fellow to work and study under the leadership of OSV’s agriculture program for 12 months, starting in spring 2020. As a living history site dedicated to the history of early 19th century rural New England, a major component of OSV’s mission is its commitment to showing farm life. The fellowship follows the seasonality of the farmer’s year, specializing in animal husbandry. Working as an historic farmer will entail using all aspects of the farm as educational tools, such as, costume, livestock, crops, fields, buildings, pasture, and landscape to make meaningful connections with our visitors.
