I expected cows and perhaps some antique farm equipment in a barn but it was so much more. I enjoyed the garden talk, and learning how to make cheese. The museum was fascinating. And I loved seeing the working kitchen in the old house.

The sleigh ride and horses were great! Loved looking at the farm house. Coal stoves were great. How they got hot water and lived on a daily basis was interesting. Animals and milk parlor were also interesting! Thanks for a great day Billings farm and museum!

Each year we spend a few Autumn days in Vermont's loveliest village, Woodstock. Visit highlight always includes our Billings Farm visit. Watching the lovely, placid Jersey Cows being milked in the cleanest, sweetest-smelling barn you'll ever see is terrific for all ages. We also love walking around the farm, gardens, museum of New England farming, and gift shop too. Just... More

Billings Farm is a historical place. It's like stepping back in time. The history here is so well preserved! My granddaughter helped make ice cream the old fashioned way! She got to crank the apple press and rewarded with a sample of the delicious cider. From the horse drawn wagon ride to making friends with all the farm animals. It... More

I loved this place so much I wrote about it for Vermont Life Magazine. The scenery and hands-on activities are such a delight. The museum is laid out well and there's always something going on. Take your time while in Woodstock and extend your visit so you can enjoy everything at the farm and museum you possibly can. Fun for... More

My son and I visited for the Vermont Fine Furniture & Woodworking Festival(being held Sept. 23-24, 2017). There was so much to see and do at Billings and across the road! We toured through the house, enjoyed seeing the animals, built a birdhouse to take home and decorated walking sticks. The wood demonstrations and products were phenomenal!! We even bought... More

There is nothing like experiencing a true working farm! Even though I live in CT, whenever I go to VT I try to make it to Billings Farm and Museum! From the time you walk in through the guest center you feel like family. Truly, who doesn't love cows, sheep and horses?! I highly recommend going here to give your... More

I have visited Billings Farm and Museum many times over the years and have always enjoyed my time there. The site is beautifully set among the hills of Vermont which never fail to amaze whether with their fresh greens of spring or brilliant reds, oranges and yellows of fall. The gentle Jerseys and immense work horses add life to the... More
