“Billings Farm & Museum is just a scenic stroll from the village center of Woodstock, Vermont, and is regarded as one of the finest outdoor history museums in the country. Combining a fully-operating Jersey dairy farm with educational exhibits and interactive programs and events, Billings Farm & Museum is committed to providing education and enjoyment to visitors of all ages. From meeting our award-winning Jersey dairy cows, draft horses, and sheep, to exploring the carefully restored 1890 Farm Manager’s House, sampling Billings Farm cheddar, and taking part in hands-on activities, there really is something for everyone.”

Grocery Store
“This is my happy place. Not a traditional outdoor market, but rather a select grocery store with uniquely Vermont products, WFM is worth a wander for the samples alone. But do not miss the deli counter and coffee counter. Grab a sandwich (my fav: the Quechee Gorge -- local sourdough bread, 3 types of local cheese, Fox's Mustard, tomato and bacon... mmmmmm) and an Aztec Latte (a delectably spiced mocha), sit out by the river, and enjoy! Then head back in and pick up your produce, beer, and cheese for your stay at my cute little cottage!”

“When you take the necessary trip to quaint Woodstock, pop into Mount Vert. Great coffee, yummy pastries, delish breakfast and lunch. A perfect break before you head into Yankee Books, up Mount Tom, or to the Woodstock Inn Spa for a massage!”
