Billings Farm and Museum offers farming camp


Monday-Friday, Aug. 7-11, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.—Woodstock—Farm Discovery Camp is a hands-on program for young people, ages 11-14. At Farm Discovery Camp, campers will meet local professionals and farmers who are leaders in their fields — the Billings Dairy Farm manager, local beekeepers, and a large-animal veterinarian. Activities will include the opportunity to work alongside the Billings’ farmers to learn the ins and outs of dairy production.
