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.

The hardening off area for trays ready to be transplanted got shredded last night so had to move everything back into the greenhouse - only space available is on the floor but it beats 40 mph wind and snow. The protective coverings out in the fields are at least half in tact - which all in all is acceptable. Snow in May. Should be an interesting season.

Thinking of you. Here at Lostacres Orchard it was 25 degrees at 3am. Then the cloud cover came in and it warmed!! Up to 35 degrees by 6am. The peach blossoms weren't too happy. Time will tell.

Can’t wait for the season to begin! It’s what summer is about for me and my husband! We live you guys! You feed us in so many ways!

Thanks for saving the babies.
