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.

We sent off our beloved crew member, Georgia, to Vermont this past week so she can finish off the summer with a job at @intervalecommunityfarm and then continue her education at UVM. The crew becomes like a family to each other which makes saying goodbye to such an amazing and hardworking coworker so much harder. Georgia has blessed the farm with her warm smiles and laughter, hard work, and farming knowledge for over a year and we cannot wait to see where she’ll end up in the future! ... See MoreSee Less

And a great example for other Granby kids - Holcomb Farm is a great place to “grow” !!

Georgia Mcdougall you will be missed not only at Holcomb Farm but in MY kitchen!!! I know you and Spencer will have a blast transforming Burlington with your greatness! Love you.

You will surely be missed, Georgia, as you brought so much positivity to the farm. It seems foolish to say good luck in your new adventures, because there’s no doubt that you will succeed in whatever you put your mind to. Have a great time!

Good Good Luck!!

Excellent

Can you guess what the crew is planting?! It thrives in the sun, comes from the Brassicaceae family, and is a best planted at a 45 degree angle. Last hint... this is a year of perennials!

P.S Don’t forget to mark your calendars, only 10 more days till we open!!!!!!
