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 & gardener’s year, specializing in crop and land management. Working as an historic farmer/gardener will entail using all aspects of the farm as educational tools, such as, costume, gardens, livestock, fields, buildings, pasture, and landscape to make meaningful connections with our visitors.
