Knoll Farm is a family farm specializing in purebred registered Icelandic Sheep and Certified Organic pick-your-own Blueberries, in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains. Beyond growing food, we are a home place to nurture creativity, build community, embolden leadership and live with joy. This is a place of history, community, inspiration and learning. Knoll Farm is also the founding home of the Center for Whole Communities, is conserved by the Vermont Land Trust, and is on the Register of Historic Places.
Our new book, A Man Apart: Bill Coperthwaite's Radical Experiment in Living is now published! Part-biography, part-family memoir, it chronicles our late friend and mentor Bill Coperthwaite's unusual life, as well as describes the adventure of building his last wooden yurts by hand on a remote stretch of Maine coast.

Sheep Farm Apprenticeships
We are currently looking for farm apprentices for the 2015 season. Our 3-month apprenticeship includes housing and a modest wage in exchange for a deep hands-on learning experience with raising sheep in a grass-fed system and running a PYO blueberry operation. Read more.
Our lambing begins in late March - we expect to have around 45 lambs from 6 different sires. We are now taking deposits on 2015 purebred Icelandic lambs.
