at Knoll Farm!

Our Vermont Picnic Baskets

(Available May 15-Oct 15)

What better way to enjoy someone’s company and celebrate the beauty and bounty of summer with a delicious picnic?

Knoll Farm is a natural place for a picnic. Spectacular mountain views, wide open fields or shady sitting rocks, gardens and handmade buildings, birds and sheep. To make it even better, all the food in our picnic baskets is made here or sourced from other farms and small food producers in Vermont.

You must order your picnic online. They are packed for 2 people. Picnic groups are limited to 6 people or fewer; larger groups are very welcome but need an advance reservation.

Our fall hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 9 am-6 pm, and Sundays 9 am to 3 pm. In addition we are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday until dark. If you wish to stay in the evening, you must be sure to pick up your picnic before 6 pm. We are closed Mondays.

We look forward to seeing you soon!


We are excited to offer 3 different Picnic Baskets, full of delicious locally made items like crusty bread, goat cheese, salumi, our pestos and jams and homemade desserts. Choose from Omnivore, Vegetarian, or Romantic (includes chocolate and flowers) in our online store. Each basket is packed for two people.

How do I come Picnicking at the Farm?


How do the picnic baskets work? Can I pick them up and take them elsewhere or do I need to stay at the farm?

Packed in an apple basket with accessories from our kitchen, our picnic baskets are designed to be enjoyed only at Knoll Farm. Please be sure to return to basket, knife, cutting board and jars when you leave, and we will sanitize them for the next person. We can wrap any food you don’t eat for you to take home.

How much food is in a picnic basket?

We pack the picnics to serve two people. They include a small loaf of bread, meat and cheeses, vegetables, spreads or pickles, fruit and dessert. We also put in a sharp knife and some serving utensils. They don’t include drinks, cups, plates, napkins or a blanket. Get as fancy as you like!

Can I bring my own picnic?

Picnicking at Knoll Farm is for those who purchase picnic provisions from us, or have a Season Pass.

What about alcohol to add to my picnic?

We cannot serve alcohol but we allow you to BYOB to the grounds, so long as you drink responsibly and discreetly.  Please also be sure to take away all your bottles, cans and trash. You will also need to bring your own glassware. We suggest paper cups or mason jars to avoid breakage.

When can I come?

We are open for picnicking every day except Monday. We are open until 6 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, and until 8 pm Thursday through Saturday. On Sundays we close at 3 pm. Please give us at least one hour notice to pack a picnic for you. If you order one at the farm store, you can take a walk until it’s ready. We ask that you leave the property by closing time, or before dark. Thank you!

What if I want to bring a group?

We often hosts groups of folks on a walking tour or having an informal party who want to enjoy a picnic. We will reserve you a sheltered area and provide a tour of the farm if desired. For groups larger than 6 people we ask that you make a reservation and pay a facilities fee for your event. You can get this information by filling out our contact form, and we will get back to you promptly. Thank you.
