The New Hampshire Farm Museum is a non-profit 501 c3 educational organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and carrying forward New Hampshire's rural and agricultural heritage.

The NH Farm Museum consists of two adjoining farmsteads situated on 50 acres located on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, New Hampshire. The historic Jones Farm and the Plummer Homestead date to the late 18th century and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The farms were passed down in the same families for generations. The Museum is open to the public five days per week mid-June through Labor Day and on weekends during the shoulder seasons. We offer special events and programs on weekends throughout the year. We offer guided tours of the farm and the historic Jones farmhouse and exhibits and displays on rural life and agriculture in New Hampshire. Special events and programs, work shops, school group visits and day camps are offered throughout the year. We have a working farm with heritage breed farm animals and heirloom varieties of vegetables.

The New Hampshire Farm Museum seeks to hire an Executive Director to provide leadership, strategy, and vision to move the organization through the next phase of growth. We seek a nonprofit professional who can build on the success of and fulfill the potential for this 45-year-old organization. The position reports to the Board of Trustees and is responsible for overall operation of the organization.

    The successful candidate will have:
  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in nonprofit management;
  • Proven success in fundraising of many types—membership development, annual appeal, planned giving, major donor cultivation/stewardship, and/or events;
  • Ability to guide Board of Trustees in fundraising and other volunteer needs;
  • Experience working collaboratively and creatively inside and outside the organization;
  • Superior organization and multitasking skills;
  • Supervisory experience;
  • Communication skills with the ability to articulate goals and delegate tasks.

A plus would be either museum, educational, or agricultural experience.

The New Hampshire Farm Museum is in Milton, New Hampshire, on the southeastern NH border with Maine and just off two exits of the Spaulding Turnpike.

It is less than a half hour from Lake Winnipesaukee and Wolfeboro. This is a full-time exempt position with some amount of flexibility during the off-season. The Executive Director would supervise seasonal part-time employees and take part in an upcoming update of the organization’s strategic plan. The position will remain open until a qualified candidate is hired; starting salary is upper $40s to low $50s, commensurate with experience. View the job description.
