Reviewed October 10, 2012

Loved the chance to explore an actual working farm! The displays of antique farm implements was exhaustive and very well displayed, very educational.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We went out of our way to attend the Billings Farm and Museum Fall Festival, and we were very disappointed. We essentially paid $12 each to walk around the country and see a few farm buildings. This might be great for people who have never been on a farm before, but for anyone who has spent even a small amount of time in the country, I'd recommend skipping this.

“Tourist farm”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Lots to see. Intersesting. Big place. Not a real working farm but more of a tourist attraction. That said, lots to see here.

“A family day”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a good spot to spend an afternoon or morning with children. They can get up close to milking cows, calves, horses, goats, sheep, have a hands on project with an agricultural product. The adults can enjoy a walk through the manager's house, and read about farm implements. Everyone can enjoy the gift shop and movie.

Reviewed October 4, 2012

We spent almost all day here taking the tours and talking with the interpretors. One great history and cultural story and a must do while in the area.
