The Woodstock Vermont Film Series will feature “Joan Baez,  I Am a Noise.” At the end of a 60-year musical career, Baez, the legendary folk singer and activist, takes an honest look back and a deep look inward as she tries to make sense of her large history-making life, and the personal struggles she’s kept private. The film will be shown on Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Visitor Center Theater. (Film Series tickets are purchased separately.)

Follow the story walk along the pasture fence, take a step back in history with a self-guided tour of the 1890 Farm Manager’s House.

Meet the farm’s animals including Jersey cows, sheep, chickens and goats all cozy in the animal barns. There will be daily milking starting at 3 p.m. in the cow barn.

Explore the Billings Farm Trail on snowshoes or cross-country skis and venture through the picturesque snow-covered farm fields and along the Ottauquechee River. Bring your own or rent from the nearby Woodstock Inn & Resort Nordic Center. Bring your sled to speed down the small hill next to the orchard.
