Today at Billings Farm & Museum you can explore acres of pastures where Jersey cows, horses, sheep and goats roam. Meet a new calf up close in the Heifer Barn, or stroll along our Ottauquechee River Walk.
Visit the Dairy Bar for a special treat – cider and doughnuts! Available daily along with seasonal flavors of Vermont-based Wilcox ice cream and Billings Farm cheese. The Dairy Bar is open 11:00AM-4:00PM.
Wander our apple orchard and our educational Heirloom Garden, Victory Garden, Pollinator Garden, and Pizza Garden to see what’s ready to harvest.
Families can Find the Hidden Pumpkins in the Farm Life Exhibits and take a “Sheep Trick or Treat” Story Walk by the pastures.
You will also find interpretive displays on the porch, in the windows, and the terrace of the 1890 Farm Manager’s House. Enter near the Dairy Bar to watch how ice was cut for the ice house and to learn how it was used. Bring a picnic and spend the day in a beautiful, relaxing outdoor farm setting in the heart of Woodstock.
Other spaces that are open to guests include the Visitor Center & Theater, “Upon This Land” exhibit, Farm Life Exhibits, Wagon and Chicken Barns. Watch videos in the Activity Barn to learn how our cows are milked and to see demonstrations of historic recipes.
NOTE: Not all animals will be in the pastures every day. Additionally, the Animal Barns and 1890 Farm Manager’s House are closed until further notice due to safety precautions. Find a full list of what to visit at Billings Farm here.
