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.

Well, looks like we’ll be going big on overwintered parsnips next spring. Our homemade bed lifter took a beating and is down for the count after 300 rough and tumble bed feet.
Always some dicey decisions in each year’s crop plan, but will not be putting any more parsnips or carrots in Hickory Block 3 - BIG ROCKS.
If the weather thaws at some point, we’ll get old timey and dig up each individual parsnip

Frosty mornings bring on discoveries of beauty and wonder as nature prepares for her winter rest. Like this delicately intricate structure of a tomatillo husk, withered and frosted over, sparkling in the early rays of a rising sun like a jeweled crown.
