Our Animals

Our Animals

With over 70 Jersey cows (an average of 35 milking at any one time), five draft horses, and a flock of Southdown sheep, Billings Farm provides the intimate experience of a small dairy farm. We are a fully-operating farm, growing 90% of our animal feed, using milk from our cows to make 100% raw milk Billings Farm Cheddar Cheese, and offering unlimited opportunities for visitors to explore the farm and get to know our livestock.

Throughout the year, visit the milking barn, the home of our Jersey herd. During the summer, our sheep and horses graze in the pastures while the cows spend the cool nights in the pasture after their afternoon milking. In the winter, visit the cow, horse, and sheep barns, and enjoy horse-drawn wagon or sleigh rides around the property.

We also offer a wide range of educational programs throughout the season, including Up Close with a Jersey Cow, Meet Our Sheep, An Introduction to Milking, and Meet a Draft Horse, where you’ll be able to learn more about these hard working animals. Be sure to check our daily schedule for more information on what’s happening.
