A New Era in South Somerville

A surefire sign of the changing of the times is a literal change of the guards. No, we aren’t talking about Buckingham Palace, but we are referring to James Buck Duke’s place in South Somerville (now Hillsborough), New Jersey. As of recently, a rare golden opportunity has emerged with very little fanfare attached. Duke Farms recently posted a job opening for the elusive title of Director at Duke Farms.

Yes, you read that correctly. What is most stifling is that it is an external application which, unlike the last time this position was overturned to a new set of hands, suggests that new faces are warranted at this historic nonprofit. Last time, this position was filled through referral and was filled by a consultant who partnered with the estate long ago. Now, the wealthy organization has an executive team searching for the right candidate to lead Duke Farms into a new era of innovation and be the face of positive change.

For interested persons with experience in nonprofit work and environmental consciousness, or for those who just feel they have what it takes, the listing is available on dukefarms.org/ Perhaps this new beginning can bring the Dukes back to the property in ways that guests can enjoy.

Stay curious, darlings.
