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.

Another great photo of Laura Holcomb from @Dcreationz Donna Holcomb Larose!
Donna says: Laura Holcombe with her dog…
I have no idea of the identity of the next two girls, then Emma (Griffin) Case with her daughters, Margaret and Gertrude in front of her. I have no idea of the remaining four to the right of her. Does anyone know who they were? I’m guessing this photo is circa 1923-4 as my mother, Margaret (Case) Holcomb was born in 1917 and her younger sister, Gertrude (Case) Slaughter was born in 1921. I just love history! ❤️

Thank you, Dcreationz Donna Holcomb Larose for sharing this sweet pic of siblings Tudor and Laura Holcomb, who owned and operated Holcomb Farm from the early 1900s through 1976. These kids grew up to be innovative farmers, smart businesspeople, good neighbors, and generous philanthropists; and we are so grateful to them for the gift of this beautiful farm. ...

You are very welcome! ❤️ When I found this wonderful portrait (this past week, among my mother’s keepsakes), I knew immediately that it needed to be shared. My assumption is that Tudor’s and Laurel’s parents gave this portrait to my great grandparents. My grandfather, Raymond E. Case, was born and died on the farm directly south on the other side of the street. Raymond and Tudor were great lifelong friends and often business partners. I have fond memories of both Tudor and Laurel Holcombe and of playing on both farms in my youth. ❤️😃

Sweet potatoes are officially harvested (go team)!!

These tasty root veggies are now curing in our large storage room. We maintain cozy-warm temps with the help of several space heaters and we even hose down the floor every so often to keep the humidity up! This curing process allows them to develop their sweet-tasting flavor and gives them better storage capacity.

It is quite the project but….have no fear!This process is already well underway and you will be seeing sweet potatoes in the farm store soon enough! 🍠🍠
