802-457-2355

Explore one of the finest operating dairy farms in America and a museum of Vermont's rural past - your gateway to Vermont's rural heritage. Billings Farm features many aspects of farm work, including care of the Jersey cows and other livestock, milking of the herd, crop rotation, and feed production.

Get to know our Jerseys, sheep, horses, and oxen through interactive programs and activities. Explore the barns and calf nursery and watch the afternoon milking of the herd. Visitors will experience a first-hand sampling of actual farm work, animals, and agricultural processes. The authentically restored 1890 Farm House, the center of the farm and forestry operation a century ago - features the farm manager's office, family living quarters - and creamery, where butter was produced for market. Interactive programs in the farmhouse for visitors and students interpret 19th century agricultural improvement, butter production, and domestic life. Engaging exhibits housed in 19th century barns depict the annual cycle of rural life and work, as well as the cultural values of Vermont farm families a century ago.

Working dairy farm with up close and personal Jersey cows and calves plus large Belgian horses a museum in the farm house. Well worth it even if you live in cattle country.

Great exhibit / video telling you the history of the farm. Tons of beautiful spaces to explore a and walk around, meeting the different farm animals. They have dairy cows, sheep, horses, and chickens. Try the cheddar from their gift-shop, you won't be disappointed!

I have been here at least twice and it's awesome! I saw the Tractor event in 2014! I will be back as this is one of a few top spots for me to see in Vermont!
