Pumpkins

Celebrate the start of fall at Billings Farm and Museum!

Voted by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce as a Top 10 Fall Event for 2014, the weekend features hands-on activities and programs, plus pumpkin and apple displays highlighting these two important fall crops, their historical importance, and many uses. Horse-drawn wagon rides are included with admission.

Take the apple taste test and vote for your favorite! Lend a hand pressing cider, making pumpkin or apple ice cream, and peeling apples for drying. Join in the “pumpkin and apple fun” with apple races, pumpkin bowling, apples-on-a-string, sampling pumpkin bread and pumpkin Legos®. See apple butter being made in the farmhouse kitchen and take home a recipe for “Pumpion Pye.”
