“Bag of Fun” Crafts and Activities-to-Go, Virtual Tours: Meet the Animals & Behind the Scenes at the Farm & Museum

Beginning on Thursday, March 19, Billings Farm & Museum will offer options for local families with kids at home, and for folks farther away who want to explore our farm and museum.

The Billings Farm & Museum’s crafts and activities to-go program starts on Thursday, 3/19! We will set up a “drive-through” outside our Visitor Center where you can pick up a “Bag of Fun!” craft and activity kits to take home. We will distribute the kits from 9-10am and 12-1pm, and then on Tuesdays and Thursdays at those same times going forward.

This week’s kit includes: Make a paper bag Jersey, learn about cows and breeds, and instructions on how to make butter at home.
