Directions: From the north, take Rte100 from Waterbury south through Waitsfield. One mile south of the village, just before the junction of Route 17 and Route100, turn right onto Bragg Hill Road. Drive straight up hill (paved road) 1/2 mile. You will see a red barn and a sign for Knoll Farm. Park in the area designated by signs. If you need help ask someone at the farm.  If needed, we will have some one park your car.


From the south, take Route 100 north through Granville, bypass Warren, to just after Route17. As Rte100 curves right, turn left onto Bragg Hill Road and proceed up the hill as directed above.
