What a great place to visit, especially for city folks & kids who have never experienced farm life (I have in my youth). This is a large working farm with jersey cows, horses, sheep, etc. The grounds are magnificent and part of the Marsh/Billings/Rockefeller National Historic Park. The volunteers and staff are so friendly and informative too. A great way... More

Interesting history and a fun place to visit, certainly unexpected in this small VT town. Adults will enjoy the history and the kids will enjoy seeing the farm animals. If you are visiting the area the farm is worth stopping at.

We absolutely loved our visit to the Billings farm and museum. It is very organized and kid friendly. My 21 month old had a great time playing with the animals. They also have a 1890 farmhouse which is very interesting. And the ice cream in the dairy bar is super yummy. Do visit this farm if you are in this... More

The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and solicitous about special requests. The museum engaged the... More

This is a great farm in beautiful Woodstock. Our group consisted of three adults and two grade school aged children. Admission was reasonably priced at $57 for the five of us. We first toured some of the buildings, including the wagon barn and the ice house. Then we grabbed ice cream for the kids at the dairy bar next to... More

Such great history and wonderful staff to explain it all! It was so awesome to see the animals being treated as they should be with proper grazing and love. No industrial farming happening here!! The exhibits upstairs from the visitor's center were very well done and informative. The visitor center staff were very pleasant. The Butter Cheddar is to die... More
