Why Join Our CSA?
Holcomb Farm is a nonprofit CSA that farms without chemicals or pesticides -- not even organically approved ones. 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.
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.
Summer CSA - Coming Soon!
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
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 - Cancelled due to Summer Flooding
We are sorry to have to cancel our 2021-22 Winter CSA. The rains from Hurricanes Henri and Ida overwhelmed our already saturated fields and left the farm covered in standing water. We had crops sitting in water for days and even had streams flowing across our fields.
We know this is terrible news, as so many of you have come to rely on our Winter Shares. We are devastated as well. We do plan to be back next year, so if you don't already subscribe to our emails, please sign up today so you'll be the first to received updates about when you can register for 2022 shares!
You'll see our order forms give you the option of adding a donation to Fresh Access to your transaction. This year, with the support of people like you, the Friends of Holcomb Farm provided more than 12 tons of healthy, chemical-free, fresh produce annually to approximately 3,500 people in need through our Fresh Access program.
