crafts demonstrations

NOTE: Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, crafts and hands on activities are temporarily suspended. Many crafts are offered as downloads to make at home. Visit Billings Farm at Home for craft activities.

Join us for daily crafts, demonstrations and engaging activities in one of our dedicated activity spaces. These include the Activity Barn, which is accessed through the Visitor Center and from the doors facing the 1890 Farm Manager’s House and Dairy Bar, as well as in the Wagon Barn and Chicken Barn along the path outside the Activity Barn. On good weather days, activities frequently take place outdoors around the grassy oval. View Map.

Make a bracelet from natural fibers, churn butter, try your hand at lacing cards, play a classic 1890’s game or make a seasonal craft, like candle dipping.

Be sure to check our daily schedule for more information on what’s happening the day of your visit.
