Event Description

3rd Annual Family Farm Fest

April School Vacation Week
Saturday, April 15, 2017 to Sunday, April 23, 2017


Young and old are invited to celebrate spring with the arrival of baby animals and the prepping of our fields at Old Sturbridge Village. Meet the Village’s cuddly, heritage breed newborns up-close and experience first-hand the responsibilities of raising animals on a farm in 1830. At the Freeman Farm, families will learn about 19th century agriculture practices and tools, as well as learn how they are applicable to today’s farmers and evLaura Ingalls Wilder, as portrayed by historian Melanie Stringeren backyard gardeners. Kids will even have a chance to try their hand at seasonal chores!

Visit with a variety of animals including cattle, lambs, goats, chicks, bunnies and piglets. Compete in our Farm Yard Games, take a hay wagon ride around the country side, and learn more about farming and gardening. On weekends, listen to music in the Center Meetinghouse and meet guest teamsters from around New England.

All week during Family Farm Fest, guests will thrill at "meeting" Laura Ingalls Wilder, of the "Little House" series, as portrayed by historian Melanie Stringer. Stringer provides research-based, factual information about Wilder, her husband Almanzo, daughter Rose, and their family and friends. Her in-character answers to questions from the audience will reflect Ms. Wilder's known activities, tastes, opinions, experiences, beliefs, and manners.

Enjoy expanded hands-on and interactive activities throughout the Village, along with family-friendly performances and entertainment, including music and storytelling. Meet the new arrivals at the farm (every day) and on Monday (Patriots' Day), take part in martial activities.
