Tour this interactive outdoor history museum in Woodstock, Vermont.
This fully operating farm features farm animals, pastures, and interactive activities that are fun for the whole family. You will see steers, cows, oxen, sheep, pigs, horses, goats, and chickens at this lovely farm. There are four historic barns on-site displaying tools, farming equipment, and family possessions passed down from previous generations. These exhibits also teach about ice cutting, maple sugaring, and the life of rural farmers who took care of this piece of land.
Visitors can pet the animals in the barns but do not approach or disturb any farm animals grazing in the pasture. If you visit near the end of summer, you can also see the plot of blooming sunflowers. These plants grow for about six weeks from the beginning of August to mid-September annually. Check out the victory garden, where they grow vegetables like corn, lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, summer squash, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, and more. Another treat is the pollinator garden, where you can learn how to grow plants that attract pollinators like monarch butterflies and bees. This attraction has varying hours depending on the time of year. Explore the Billings Farm & Museum with your friends and family today.
