Visiting Us

Our mission and pleasure has always been to welcome people to this land. Our retreat center is open seasonally, from May 15 to October 15.

If you wish to walk our trails, shop in the farm store, please follow the guidelines below. Thank you for respecting a few simple rules and our privacy, and we look forward to your visit.

Day Visitor Guidelines

Please see our Contact Us page for seasonal hours.

  1. When you visit, please check in at the farm stand so that we can give you a Day Pass and tell you what’s going on that day.
  2. Please know that Knoll Farm is a busy place, while also an important peaceful haven for many on retreat. We hope that you will help us to maintain that peaceful energy on the hill during your visit, and respect others’ space as you pick berries, walk our trails, or have a picnic. This is hugely appreciated!
  3. Please enjoy and respect the open fields and trails but do not walk into the buildings or open gates. This helps us to be able to farm, live, and run programs here and still share our farm with all of you.
  4. Please leave your beloved pets at home. No dogs, even on a leash. Thank you!
  5. Finally, this is a working farm and full of the usual hazards – bees, splinters, open water….Please be aware of where your children are and what they are doing at all times. Thank you!
