ADVANCED TEACHING SKILLS
Knoll Farm is based in the Mad River Valley of central Vermont. The farm is known for raising purebred Icelandic sheep and organic pick-your-own blueberries. Knoll Farm is also home of The Refuge, a retreat center well known nationally as a place where leadership, relationships, and well being are given space to flourish.
6 nights and days lodging in yurts (2-4 people per yurt), quads, and two double occupancy rooms are available. The yurts are light and airy with windows, skylight, and decks surrounding them. They also include outdoor fire pits for campfires at night. You will have the experience of being immersed in nature with birdsong, stars and peace. The beautiful adobe bathhouse, centrally located to the yurts, has sinks, hot showers with private changing rooms, and flush toilets. Just outside the bath house is a hot tub to enjoy in the evenings.
You will enjoy three meals a day served family style in the Knoll Farm barn. Food is fundamental and what Knoll Farm is known for. Farm to table and made with love and their belief in radical hospitality. Outdoor wood-fired pizza, blueberry muffins made from the fresh berries picked from the farm, herbed butters made by Helen that day with every last leaf that she harvested from the plant to be sure there is no waste. Dining together in the barn or out under the stars or picnic style depending on the meal the weather and the day. The Refuge is happy to cater to food allergies and dietary restrictions as needed, so long as they know ahead of time. They also provide coffee and tea all day, and have a guest fridge where you can store your own snacks.
Guests are encouraged to explore Knoll Farm's certified organic family farm in the heart of the Green Mountains, near Waitsfield, Vermont. The land has been in agriculture since 1804 and its buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. The land, which tilts to the southeast, is perfectly suited for growing berries. The resident flock of Icelandic sheep enjoys the pastures and woodland edges. The land has spectacular views of the Northfield and Green Mountain ranges.
