Sleigh

Did you miss out during January’s Sleigh Ride Weekend? Now is your chance!

Take a trip to Vermont’s famous Billings Farm & Museum for a fun-filled day with the family.

Climb aboard the Billings Farm sleigh for a ride through the frosty farm fields. On the weekends, sled with jack jumpers and in commemoration of Presidents’ Day, sample favorite cookies of the Presidents, including Grover Cleveland Snickerdoddles, Ulysses Grant Lemon Drops, James Monroe Waverly Jumbals and Harry Truman Coconut Cookies. Hands–on activities on the weekends will include making presidential silhouettes and presidential trivia.

In the barns, discover Vermont dairying – past and present – and learn about the development of the Billings Farm, still one of the best Jersey farms in America. The horse barn, calf nursery, milk room, cow barn, and sheep barn are stops along the self-guided tour. Up-close programs with the livestock will be offered including An Introduction to Milking and Milking the Herd programs at 3:15 p.m. each day.

The restored and furnished 1890 Farm House will be open for touring, featuring the farm office, family living quarters, creamery, and ice house.

Sleigh Ride Week admission includes sleigh or wagon rides, jack jumper sledding, the farm, farm house, and activities, plus A Place in the Land, an Academy Award® nominee film.
