Holcomb Farm

Holcomb Farm is a 312-acre working historic farm located in the heart of West Granby, Connecticut. It is comprised of:

  • A nonprofit, mixed-vegetable production farm that produces abundant, delicious produce without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We grow on 26 acres of Town-owned property for a 450 member Summer CSA, 100 member Winter CSA, wholesale customers, our farm store, and our food donation program, called Fresh Access.  We use only chemical- and GMO-free methods and sign the Northeast Organic Farming Assocation of Connecticut’s Farmer’s Pledge.
  • 10+ miles of trails that are open to the public, from dawn to dusk. Our trails connect to McLean Game Refuge and Granby Land Trust trails, and wind their way through the beautiful, varied terrain of rural West Granby, in the foothills of the Berkshires.
  • A beautiful banquet facility for life's special events. All private bookings are handled through the Town of Granby's Parks and Recreation Department.
  • A community gathering place in a historic New England setting.
  • A nonprofit organization that does good work in Hartford County. Through Fresh Access, we donate more than eight tons of fresh produce to people in need each year. In addition, through the Friends of Holcomb Farm and our CSA, we host periodic events that celebrate healthy living, almost always free-of-charge, and open to all.

The farm is operated collaboratively by the Town of Granby and a Board of Directors composed of local citizens.

They’re back! Been hearing them in the cattails at Junipers school the past week. I used to call them Red Winged Anxiety Birds, and their late winter arrival would physically effect me - winter gone too fast! not enough prep done! overwhelming work coming!
Not so this year - bring it on! Going into our seventh year, systems are in place, great crew chomping at the bit to get going, and exciting spring projects to dig into.
Seeding starts Monday and with that the 2020 season officially begins!
Welcome back Red-Winged Blackbirds, great to hear you again.

Try something new!! One of the many good reasons to join a CSA. We grow all the staples but it’s all the new and unusual veggies that make eating local so exciting.

All winter we’ve been donating veggies to Friday Try Day at Juniper’s preschool. Adults can learn a lot from these open-minded adventurous kiddos.

When you come to get your share at the Farm you get to pick what you take home - but don’t be afraid to try something new!

Shares still available - head to the website and sign up!

I have something new every year. This year it's Artichokes. Last year it was Ginger and the year before that Duborskian Rice.

Fantastic! Friday Try Day is the BEST!
