Museum Shop & Dairy Bar

Need to purchase gifts, or stock up on Billings Farm Cheddar before you head home?

Stop by the Museum Shop located in the visitor center. With unique gifts, hand crafts, books, and more, it’s ideal for finding a little something for family, friends, or yourself. Our children’s corner features a wonderful assortment of turn-of-the-century games like limberjacks, hoop rolling, and graces – plus stuffed animals, toy tractors, and books and videos relating to nature and farm life.

For foodies, our cooler is stocked with delicious treats, including an assortment of Vermont’s famous maple products, gourmet mustards, locally-made jams and jellies, and maple syrup.
