Harvest Weekend at Billings Farm, Woodstock VT

Photo copyright Billings Farm and Museum

One of my favorite towns in Vermont is Woodstock and one of my favorite places in
Woodstock is the Billings Farm and Museum. In your travels around central Vermont,
Billings is one place I think should be at the top of your list of places to visit.

This coming weekend, October 9 and 10, Billings is hosting its annual Harvest Weekend.
Each day there will be an old time husking bee, barn dance, hand pressing
cider, preserving apples, making butter and ice cream, harvesting the heirloom
vegetable garden, "putting them up” for winter, shelling corn and beans, fence
building, Saturday rug hooking demonstration, apples-on-a-string, and 19th
century games. Hot-spiced cider and homemade doughnuts will be available.
Harvest Weekend is a Vermont Top Ten Fall Event as selected by the Vermont
Chamber of Commerce.

Billings Farm is a beautiful operating dairy farm with an excellent educational building.
It is open everyday until the end of October and then weekends November through February.
Admission is $12.00 for adults, $6.00 for children 5 to 15: $3.00 for children 3 to 4, and
2 & under are free. Billings is a great place to bring kids not only for this event
but also to see the educational exhibits plus horses, cows and sheep.

Billings is located just a little north of Woodstock VT at the intersection of
Route 12 and River Road. From Interstate highway 89, take exit 1 and go west on
Route 4 about ten miles to Woodstock.
