Visit Billings Farm & Museum

Quick Links: Hours        Admission        General Info

Billings Farm & Museum is a fully-operational dairy farm and a museum of Vermont’s rural heritage located in Woodstock, Vermont. A three-hour drive from Boston and Hartford, and six hours from New York City and Quebec, Billings Farm is a living monument of Vermont’s rural past. The farm dates back to 1871, when Vermont native Frederick Billings established his herd of prize-winning Jerseys and began replanting the barren hillsides. His farm flourished and remains the oldest registered Jersey dairy farm in the country, milking cows daily, producing raw-milk cheddar cheese, and visited by over 55,000 families and school groups each year. Interactive programs, award-winning historical exhibits, and seasonal events introduce our visitors to Vermont’s dairying past and present.
