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 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.

This week’s farmer feature goes out to Jesse! Jesse’s passion for farming is rooted in the strength that healthy, sustainably grown food yields. He believes that educating people about where their food comes from and how it is produced is a missing part of culture today. He also is inspired by the way in which farming unites communities in a beautifully unique and indispensable way. #farmerfeaturefriday #localfood #ctfood #ctcsa ... See MoreSee Less

Sweet potatoes! Are in the farm store! This year we grew several lovely varieties. We have both full size and fingerlings included as CSA options and also for sale to the public in the farm store. Roast them in wedges, make some fries, stuff them, throw them in a baked good... these guys will make almost anything a little more delicious while also being a great source of fiber, iron and B and C vitamins. Come pick some up until Oct 31 from 10-6 tues to sat! #sweetpotato #localctfarm #ctfarm #eatlocal ... See MoreSee Less
