Support our mission!  Whether you want to volunteer regularly or just join us for a special event, there are many ways you can make a difference at Billings Farm & Museum. We offer volunteer opportunities to anyone aged 15 and older. Training will be provided as needed. Below are the main areas of service:

  • Special Events: join us on one of the most exciting days at the farm! Greet guests in our lobby, assist in our learning kitchen, make arts & crafts and more.
  • Education: support our projects behind-the-scenes or staff one of our fun “pop-up” activities, like “Guess the Artifacts,” a favorite with our visitors. Opportunities to work in our Education Garden available as well.
  • Farm & Animals: get your hands dirty in the barns and help our farm staff take care of our herd of Jersey Cows, teams of draft horses, and more. Expect to clean stalls, brush cows, and feed calves!
  • Collections & Exhibits: assist with inventorying, rehousing, and maintaining collections. You may also clean exhibitions and help with installation and deinstallation as necessary.
  • Archives: organize, rehouse, and catalogue archival material and help with special projects and research. Expand knowledge about our extensive archives.
