We had a really nice day
Jun 2021
All of the workers were very friendly and nice at the Farm and Museum. We learned a lot! It was so much fun to visit with the cows, tour the grounds and enjoy some ice cream. It's a place for all ages to enjoy.

Fun outing for adults too

The farm is beautiful and we learned a lot about 19th century technology, butter making and life! And we had some great cheese!

Billings Farm & Museum, Woodstock VT
May 2021
Informative museum highlighting dairy farming and farm life in 19th century New England. This is an active award winning dairy farm with a rich history of excellence and innovation - loved touring the barns and pastures and meeting the cows, goats and sheep. The historic barn and buildings are architectural gems. Our guide/docent, Lynn D., was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. Grounds and facilities are clean, well maintained and picturesque. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Nice way to spend an hour
May 2021
Spent a fun hour or so here, with our toddler. We were staying at the Woodstock Inn so the entrance fee was complimentary for us - which is a good thing because otherwise I think $16 per adult is a little high for what there is here. There's not much to do other than walk around the barns / fields and look at the animals. They did have a good foodtruck when we were there so we ended up having a nice lunch outside, also recommend the ice cream that is sold on site.

We walked miles of stunning carriage trials, toured outside of mansion (closed fir covid today), and visited the extremely informative dairy barn (with lovely staff in museum, small farm animal, and dairy barn areas.

Highly recommend.

Closed until April

There is a sign by the parking lot - closed until April. Even though TA says it’s open. What is open is the Rockefeller grounds. No private tours but you can walk around. Park your car at the Billings Farm

If you've never been to a farm... otherwise give it a miss
Oct 2020 • Couples
They seem to have given up being a dairy farm and are more intent on milking the visitors. Twenty odd cows. Six sheep. Three horses. One goat.

And they ask you to hand sanitize before petting the cows!

Great Vermont Farm
Oct 2020 • Solo
I spent a couple hours exploring the farm and animals. They raise the cutest jersey cows. There were horses and cows in the fields, in addition to some sheep. The highlight for me was the Heifer Barn where you could pet some of the younger cows. OMG. They are so cute! The baby calves were in another barn and you had to look through windows to see them. There’s a 30-minute overview video of the history of the property and conservation. If you’re in the Woodstock area this is a definite stop.

A Must Farm Visit
Sep 2020
I had taken school groups there but my wife had never been. So we made a day trip out of our visit. Even during the pandemic it was worth the visit. Everything was neat and well done. Animals well kept. The ground were also well groomed. Nice walk to the river. Plus the foliage was beautiful. Visit Billings Farm!
