Farmers and Fishermen: Two Centuries of Work in Essex County, Massachusetts, 1630–1850 is a book by the Canadian historian Daniel Vickers, first published in 1994. It analyzes and contrasts the economic roles of farmers and fisherman in early New England communities.
In the book, Vickers examines how a patriarchal system that relied on unpaid labor from dependent sons transitioned gradually to an economic system in which dependent sons found work outside of the family farm. For fishermen, he explores the shift from client-patron economic relations to a free market system, noting the difficulties fishermen faced in achieving economic independence in both systems.
