Billings Farm & Museum
Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historical Park
The Billings Farm began operation in 1871 when Frederick Billings, a true Vermonter, set out to establish an authentic dairy operation. He desired to create a farm that would reach out to the next generations. The Billings Farm is known for having top quality Jersey herds and other top quality animals.

Billings Farm Museum – Woodstock Vermont
The Billings Farm and Museum are located in the Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock, VT. Rockefeller Park is the only national park that exists to share the story of conservation history and the evolving nature of land and stewardship here in America. The Billings Farm and Museum are named after the first owner and operator, Frederick Billings. The 19th-century farmhouse has been completely restored and includes a business office for the farm manager, an apartment for the manager and his family, a creamery, and an adjoining ice house.
Today you can enjoy a self-guided tour through the dairy barn, calf nursery, milk room, and horse barn. If you choose to stop by during the afternoon milking you can learn all about the process of producing dairy products. The farm is still in operation, and although they still breed high-class Jerseys and produce milk, they also have a desire to be involved in educating the public. The goal is to help Americans understand and appreciate the importance of dairy farming and rural living.
The Billings Farm and Museum offers Group Tours and recommends reservations so they can greet you at the gate. The Museum Store offers a wide selection of made in Vermont gifts and items relating to farming and rural life. Billings Farm and Museum Hours vary by season, call the Billings Farm and Museum for more information. An Admission is charged.
