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 donated more than 12 tons of fresh produce to people in need in 2021. 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 spent the past week on a send off mission for our beloved crew member, Michelle, as she embarks on a six month adventure studying to become a massage therapist in Costa Rica.

The idea of her farm family dropping her off at school started, as many things do when you’ve been transplanting onions for days on end in late April, as a joke. However, it quickly turned into an opportunity we simply couldn’t pass up! And to say we enjoyed a week of warm sun, sand, fresh fruits, and ocean exploration would be a total understatement! 🌞🥭🥑🏝️🍍🥥🍉🍌

Michelle has blessed the farm with her infectious happiness, hard work, and fierce friendship. We can’t wait to see where her#holcombfarmcsa!#farmcrewb#missyoualreadyew #missyoualready

Hopping on to wish you a very happy new year! All of us at Holcomb are enjoying the shorter, slower days of winter season on the farm - cleaning, organizing, tackling projects that get pushed to the side during peak growing season. And spinach. We are enjoying greenhouse spinach! 🌱

A reminder to our Winter CSA members: the January pick up is this Friday and Saturday 1/13 + 1/14, 10am-4pm. See you then!
