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. Learn more.
  • The Holcomb Tree Trail, where nearly 100 trees are labeled with their common and botanical names; and interpretive signs teach readers more about the trees and the landscape. Learn more.
  • 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 donated more than 12 tons of fresh produce to people in need in 2021. 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.

Today is Giving Tuesday – a global day of giving. We hope you will support a cause close to home – the nonprofit Friends of Holcomb Farm. Your support will help us make improvements to our Farm infrastructure and fund the maintenance of our woodlands and trails -- including our Tree Trail -- preserving access to outdoor recreation and education for thousands of people annually.

It begins! Seed Ordering for 2022 is underway. Organic Soil Mix from @vermontcompost is already ordered and we’ll spend over $14,000 on seeds in the coming weeks. Then comes amendments, field supplies, projects and on and on. But that’s the beauty of CSA - no loans necessary, just the support of our members. Thank you! Shares are still available so if you haven’t signed up yet, hop to it and cross that chore off your list.

This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for our supporters, who help us fight food insecurity. And we are thankful for organizations like Wheeler, who help us get our produce onto the tables of the people who need it. We hope each and every one of you has a wonderful -- and delicious -- Thanksgiving. ... See MoreSee Less
