- Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, where we post the latest information on not only our CSA, but any specials we have in our Farm Store.

Summer CSA (sold out for 2021)
Enjoy fresh produce, grown without chemicals, and save money in the process. We grow nearly every vegetable that will grow in this climate, and we offer them to you in full-and half-shares. A full share will provide at least enough veggies for a family of four each week. Have questions about belonging to a CSA? Click HERE to learn more. Curious to learn more about our growing methods?

Come to the Farm each week and collect your share of the bounty, harvested at peak ripeness and washed for your convenience. Pick your own vegetables, fruits and herbs, as well -- and cut your own flowers! Pick up whenever is most convenient for you: Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm.
For the convenience of our friends from afar, we offer weekly delivery to West Hartford. Pick up your CSA share at the Unitarian Meeting House, 50 Bloomfield Ave, West Hartford, on Thursdays from 4 to 7 pm. Full share pick-ups are every week. Half share pick-ups are every other week.
Fresh Produce Delivered to Your Office
You'll see our order forms give you the option of adding a donation to Fresh Access to your transaction. The Friends of Holcomb Farm provides more than 8 tons of healthy, chemical-free, fresh produce annually to people in need through its Fresh Access program. To learn more about Fresh Access, click here. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
Once you join our CSA, you are committing to the entire season. The CSA partnership sustains our farm. Therefore, we're sorry, but we cannot issue refunds.
Winter CSA (sales open on/around September 1)
We sell out of Winter CSA shares every year, so sign up early if you want your winter and holiday meals to be as fresh and local as your summer picnics! As part of your share, you will receive orange carrots, rainbow carrots, red beets, golden beets, crushed tomatoes, potatoes, celeriac, kohlrabi, turnips, black radishes, watermelon radish, daikon radishes, sweet potatoes, onions, winter squash, cabbage, kale, collards, spinach, arugula, lettuce mix, baby kale, and much, much more.
There are five pick-ups, from November through February, with two scheduled right before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Few farms offer local produce all winter long. We are proud to provide our community with fresh, nutrient-dense veggies, grown without pesticides, even in the darkest, coldest months of winter.
Taste the Difference. Make a Difference.
Holcomb Farm is a nonprofit CSA. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture; and it is the best way to support your local farm, save money, improve your health, and liven up your dinners. CSA members pay wholesale prices before the season begins, giving us the ability to purchase seeds, maintain equipment, and hire staff (thank you!). In return, you enjoy a full season’s worth of healthy produce at a reduced cost.
We select our seed varieties for flavor, eating quality, yield, and disease resistance. Because our members receive our produce directly from the farm, hours after it is picked, we do not have to select varieties for their ability to be shipped. This allows us to emphasize flavor over shelf life, and interest over uniformity.
No Chemicals. No Pesticides.
We use no chemicals – not even organically approved ones – as we feel they are toxic to pollinators, plants and people. As a result, our vegetables are cleaner, more nutrient-dense, and, believe it or not, more tasty.
A Nonprofit Farm
Lastly, you get the added benefit of belonging to a nonprofit farm. Our mission is not revenue-driven. Our mission is to utilize this historic farm and serve our community.
