Christmas at the Farm – Billings Farm

Travel to Victorian Christmas past! Learn about a Victorian Christmas and view our authentically decorated farmhouse parlor.

Dip your own candle and enjoy the festive holiday tree and decorations that fill the Visitor Center and historic barn. Be sure to vote for the best staff-made gingerbread house on display, beginning December 9.

Warm up by the outdoor fire with a cup of cocoa and s’mores, available for purchase. Light adventure can be found on a snowshoe, hike or cross-country ski along the Ottauquechee River, weather permitting.

On the farm, guests can meet our Jersey cows, draft horses, chickens, sheep, and goats in the barns.

Christmas shopping is a delight in the Museum Gift Shop where shoppers will find unique holiday gifts and Billings Farm cheese. (No admission required) Select items, including curated gift boxes and Billings Farm cheeses, are also available in our Online Gift Shop (order by Dec. 13 for delivery by Christmas).
