SUPPORT THE FRIENDS OF HOLCOMB FARM

The Friends of Holcomb Farm is a nonprofit organization that oversees the work it takes to keep this farm thriving. By donating to the Friends, you: support sustainable farming and land conservation; help neighbors in need; support local farms and farmers; and play a role in making sure this historic farm remains a part of Granby’s rural landscape.

SUPPORT FRESH ACCESS

As our nation's battle against COVID-19 continues, the effects are far-reaching. Unemployment, sickness, and the closing of schools have made feeding a family difficult for many. To meet this increased need, we doubled the amount of produce we provided to social service agencies and area nonprofits through Fresh Access this year. But we're not out of the woods yet.

If you are able, please consider donating to the Friends of Holcomb Farm's Fresh Access program.

Holcomb Farm

Tough day at the farm yesterday. It was a challenging wet year even before Henri came through and flooded our saturated fields, then Ida came through and almost feel like throwing in the towel. But this is our new reality - a wetter New England with more frequent and severe storms - our only option is to adapt to it. But for this year we have suffered too much crop loss to do a Winter CSA, heart breaking (and potentially bank breaking) but we still have 2 months left of our Summer CSA and Fresh Access programs and that is our sole priority now.

Thank you all for your perseverance to continue to provide us with local, organic food.

These pictures are really hard to look at. I'm so saddened by them.

This is heartbreaking. Please let us know how the community can support you through this and the winter to come.

I’m so sorry 🙏

How can the community help?

We will be by to get as much produce as we can 🙂

Very sorry to see this.

Very sorry to hear. Can we setup a gofundme or something similar?

Hang in there. All the best.

Heartbreaking, indeed. We all love the winter veggies and appreciate all you and the crew do to provide this for us. Feeling your pain; donation on the way.

So sorry. So thankful for your farm.

I’m so sorry. I have been thoroughly enjoying my summer half share and appreciate all of your hard work!!

So sorry to hear this and so appreciative of all you do. What can we do to help?

Katie Amarante , me too!!!!

How can we help?

So much devastation, yet I showed up at the farm and there were bags full of healthy good looking produce to take home! Amazing!! We can’t imagine what it is like to see all your VERY hard work, planning, preparing, planting etc, sitting under water. We hope you are able to regroup and carry on…we appreciate and need our farmers more that you will ever know!! Thank You!!

Could not agree more!! Thank you all so much!!

Completely selfishly, I truly cant imagine a winter without Holcomb veggies! Multiple that by all your fans. There aren't words for my sadness for the farmers.

If anyone is willing/able to set up a GoFundMe page it sounds like a lot of us would gladly support and share it.

Bridge is out! To access the woodland trails on the west side of the farm, please enter via Broad Hill. The remnants of Hurricane Ida dislodged the bridge near the CSA fields and damaged the stream side trail. Please do not attempt to cross Salmon Brook! #holcombfarm #granbyct #friendsofholcombfarm #HurricaneIda #trailsafety ... See MoreSee Less

Some of us "Old Timers" will remember that this bridge was dislodged soon after it was built and the new footings installed.
