Old Sturbridge Village invites young and old to celebrate spring with the arrival of baby animals and the preparation of our planting fields. 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 even backyard gardeners. Kids will even have a chance to try their hand at seasonal chores! Visit with a variety of animals including cattle, lambs, chicks, and piglets. Compete in our Farm Yard Games, take a wagon ride around the countryside, and learn more about farming and gardening. Meet guest teamsters from around New England.
