Farm Store Opening & Community Open House

June 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

It’s an exciting day on the farm! We have events lined up all day — come for as little or as much of the day as you can! Attend a cooking demo with a pro. Take a farm tour with Farmer Joe. Learn more about the health benefits of eating Holcomb Farm vegetables. We’ll have coffee, homemade baked goods, and wine tastings (in addition to our Farm Store offerings!), Help the Friends of Holcomb Farm celebrate 30 Years of serving our community from this amazing place called Holcomb Farm. This event is open to the entire community, so feel free to bring your friends along to share in the experience.



10 AM: COOKING DEMO WITH CHEF PROSPERI. Learn how to use Holcomb Farm vegetables in your next meal from acclaimed chef Chris Prosperi. Chris is chef owner of Metro Bis restaurant in Simsbury, a Hartford Courant recipe columnist, an international cooking teacher, a weekly chef on NBC 30, television host of “New England Cuisine” and weekly senior contributor on “The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze®” on WNPR. He’s also a big fan of Holcomb Farm vegetables. Learn new ways to incorporate fresh, local veggies into your home cooking from an expert.

1 PM: FARM TOUR WITH FARMER JOE. Take a guided tour of our farm, where you’ll learn about our farming techniques, explore our crop fields, and learn about all we do to grow nutrient-dense, flavorful produce. The tour will be led by our Farm Manager, Joe O’Grady, and is sure to be a lot of fun (if you know, you know).

10 AM – 1 PM: CIRCUIT COFFEE FOOD TRUCK. The Circuit Coffee Food Truck, out of Westfield, MA, is a specialty coffee shop with a full espresso bar, diverse tea list and all the drinks in between. House-made pastries will be available as well. The menu is simple and quality-focused with ingredients sourced as local and fresh as possible.

12 PM – 3 PM: WINE TASTING WITH LOST ACRES VINEYARD. Taste the wines of our fellow Granby farmers from Lost Acres Vineyard! This vineyard, located in North Granby, makes its white wines and rose from a variety of grapes grown on its property. They also make apple wine, using fruit from their neighbors at Lost Acres Orchard; and red wine, using grapes grown in California.
