A really great place to learn about the heritage of dairy farming and the Billings estate. Please make the effort to visit the cinema they have ( just as you enter) with a really interesting an informative 30 minute film all about the history of the place. The you can walk down onto the farm, watch the cows being milked,... More

Watch the short film about the history of Marsh and Billings. The film is narrated by Peter Coyote. They have a schedule when the different things in and around the farm will occur. At 11:15 one can meet the sheep and get the entire history of the sheep. An hour or so later, you can meet Tom & Jerry the... More

I brought my grand-daughters to Billings Farm and Museum on Time Travel Tuesday. It was lots of fun. The special exhibit was on quilting. The girls are 7 and 10. They did a scavenger hunt at the quilting exhibit. There were magnetic shapes to practice ideas for patterns. The girls voted for their "Choice Award". One lady gave a talk... More

Worth knowing that if you are staying at the Woodstock Inn in town, you get into Billings Farm free - they are both owned by the same organisation. The farm is great - obviously lots of tractors and animals if you have small children, but also an interesting introductory film, some good displays of historical farming equipment (more interesting than...

A gem of a double facility in Woodstock, Vermont. The working dairy farm provides a look into animal husbandry and milking operations. Well worth the visit and be sure to watch the movie first in the lobby theater.

This beautiful spot is certainly worth a visit! Walking through the barns and seeing the well-cared for animals was a wonderful experience and there's nothing as relaxing as the smell of the hay and grain. The farmhouse visit was interesting -- especially the creamery area which was so modern and efficient for its time! The movie in the museum is... More
