This was a clean farm, with rich history. The people that worked here were all nice and helpful. A great place for kids to learn hands on all about the Billings Farm.

We arrived just after 4 pm, leaving less than an hour to go through the exhibits. It was too late to do a tour of the old farmhouse. But the exhibits we saw were fascinating, and of course we loved seeing the cows, horses, sheep, and chickens.

My 9-year-old granddaughter loved the visit -- not just the animals, but also the exhibits of old farm implements, the history, the models of a farmhouse interior and country store, the quilts, etc., etc. We both wish we could have spent more time, and I expect we'll be back.

This is definitely worth a visit -- but plan a few hours.

Billings farm is pristine, picturesque, and fun. Don't miss dioramas of historic farm life! ...and farm fresh ice cream cones, milking time is fascinating and petting newborn calves is amazing. I've been to Billings every year for 14 years and expect to return for many years to come

This is a great place for people of all ages.. plan to spend at least 2 or 3 hours here. Amazing history to be learned and the setting is gorgeous. Be SURE to first watch the award-winning movie (A Place in the Land) that is shown in the lovely visitors' center. See the farm house and also see the mansion across the street. My husband and I really enjoyed our visit here.

My family loved this place. Adults and children even my two year old. It was educational and fun. Be sure to show military ID if you are active military. It was a hands on experience. The tour guides and animal handlers were fantastic. They were patient, funny, pleasant, and informative.
