Billings Farm is a wonderful place to visit. We especially liked the visiting the historic farmhouse. It was neat to see a working dairy farm. The staff does a good job making your visit an educational experience. The sleigh ride included in the price of admission is a nice touch.

While on vacation in VT to go skiing we decided to stop at the Billings Farm & Museum - and are glad we did! A lot of great history about Woodstock, VT and the Marsh/Billings/Rockefeller families (don't skip or miss the short video/film). Learned about their jersey cows and got to see them up close, toured the Farmhouse where staff... More

If you're in the area, don't miss Billings Farm. A working farm as a museum of what the area was like in the late 1800s. Cows being milked, activities, horses, tour of an 1890 household. We've been here multiple times as my son has grown older. We all love it.

Working farm for dairy, fruit and vegetables. Some horses for a carriage ride. Two story old farm house as a museum. Let's have you a peek into the life of the people 100-150 years ago. Showing movies and a candle maker for the kids.

The dreary weather certainly didn't dampen our trip here, a great place and the 30 minute movie is interesting and very educational.

Always my favorite place to visit in Woodstock. Just a great, educational experience. More house/farm museums should be around like this because it is such a great learning opportunity for all ages to learn about a turn of the century farm and the first steps to create a better environment and combat deforestation.

We stop by here every so often during all seasons.Check the calendar because they have all sorts of events throughout the year. we've been when they are making ice cream, milking the cows, and just simply to enjoy the views. There is a historical restored 1890 Farm House and a lot of history about the farm and its 3 families.... More
