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! It is part memoir, part biography of a man whose life in the Maine woods defined creativity and protest against society, and part beautiful meditation on mentorship and the search for meaning.
To order: We wholeheartedly believe in the small inde bookstores that are still hanging on. But if you can't find our book locally, you can also order it from us, or from the publisher chelseagreen.com.

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.
