Churning butter

Recommended for ages 5 and up.

Learn about the tools and technologies used on a farm and how they have evolved over the years. We’ll look at artifacts from our collections and compare them to modern-day tools, then see for ourselves how the right technology can make a job easier. Students will thresh and grind grain, learn about milking, churn butter, see the farm’s oxen in action, and more.

Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Consider extending your visit! Plan to stay after 2:00 p.m. to explore more of the Farm & Museum.

Fee: $5.00 per student.
Vehicle drivers free; all other adults $5.00 each.
Children of Billings Farm & Museum members $3.00.
Vehicle drivers free; all other member adults $3.00 each.
