An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until October 18, 2020
See our farm animals in the pastures with the colorful foliage as a backdrop, enjoy a walk along the Ottauquechee River Trail, visit the apple orchard and see the many different apple varieties, and learn about 19th century harvest activities on the farm.
Each weekend throughout September and October, guests can enjoy harvest-themed activities, demonstrations, and crafts. Learn about drying herbs, and preserving apples, pumpkins, and squashes. See traditional methods of cider pressing, hand threshing of grain, corn husking and bean shelling.
Families can Find the Hidden Pumpkins in the Farm Life Exhibits and beginning in October, take a “Sheep Trick or Treat” Story Walk. Family-friendly activities and crafts will include pumpkin bowling, leaf rubbings, finger knitting, and making custom-blended bags of herbal tea.
Harvest demonstrations, activities and crafts will vary each weekend. Find daily schedules at billingsfarm.org detailing which programs will be offered.
Autumn is also the time for a special treat – cider and doughnuts! Available daily at the Dairy Bar along with seasonal flavors of Vermont-based Wilcox ice cream and Billings Farm cheese.
