On December weekends and daily December 16 through January 1, step into a Victorian Christmas past, and see the site transformed by beautiful lights and natural décor. Traditional nineteenth century decorations will adorn the 1890 Farm Manager’s House where you can take a self-guided tour.
Dip your own candle and enjoy the festive holiday tree and decorations that fill the Visitor Center and historic barn. Make a mini mince pie in the Learning Kitchen.
Toast s’mores at the outdoor fire pits and warm up with a steaming cup of hot cocoa or coffee, available for purchase. Light adventure can be found on a snowshoe, hike or cross-country ski around the snowy pastures, weather permitting.
On the farm, guests can meet our Jersey cows, draft horses, chickens, sheep, and goats in the barns.
On select days take an old-fashioned horse-drawn wagon or sleigh rides through the picturesque farmstead in winter, conditions permitting. Sleigh rides will be offered December 8, 10, 19, 21, 28, and 30. Rides are available on a first come-first serve basis and are $5 per person plus admission. Rides are approximately 10 minutes long.
Christmas shopping is a delight in the Museum Gift Shop where shoppers will find unique holiday gifts and Billings Farm cheese. (No admission required)
NOTE: Billings Farm & Museum is closed on December 24th & 25th.
