Brandon Knopp

Brandon was lured to the Warwick Valley in the fall of 2015 by top-notch ice cream, open space, and a lack of street lights.


Upon arriving, he quickly discovered paths leading him to deep inner springs, mountain top lookouts and everything in between. In one past life, Brandon was a world traveller. He climbed Mt. Sinai by moonlight, hiked across the salt flats of Bolivia, and toured abandoned monasteries throughout southeast Asia.


Today, he prefers his life as a farmer in Chester's famous Black Dirt region, and his collaboration with the rest of his team over at Milkweed Sugar Loaf.


Talk to him about any projects or ideas you have in mind regarding Intuitive Making, Active Imagination or Camping. He'll be there every Sunday throughout the summer helping to run the Market at Milkweed and facilitating any art-making that the day's visitors inspire. 

Milkweed is a community space dedicated to local artists, thinkers, collaborators, educators, movers & shakers. 

A space to connect, share, create and celebrate.

A locus of opportunity for the curious of all ages to explore ideas particular, peculiar and profound.

Milkweed is committed to cultivating an inclusive creative environment.
