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.

Heads as big as heads? Caleb is clearly not as excited as the rest of us with these large cabbage heads.

Meet your farmers! (Pt. 9)
Meet Tom! He is the farm manager assistant as well as the crew lead. He is Farmer Joe’s right hand man and for good reason. He is extremely knowledgeable in the world of agriculture and always has his nose in some new book. His favorite vegetables are eggplant and his famous eggplant parmesan is impossible to pass up!
Farmer Fun Fact: Tom has a knack for keeping the crew laughing and smiling with his goofy faces and surprisingly accurate accents.

It was a hot and sweaty afternoon but the garlic harvest is well on its way!
Every year we separate what we call the “seed stock” from the rest so we have the best of the best to replant for the next year. Each year we try to buy less and less garlic seed from other farms and are slowly building our own stock so soon we will have a self sufficient garlic system!
