What’s for Supper?

Summer has been moving by fast this year, and I hope everyone has been enjoying farm fresh fruits and veggies and grilling out as much as possible. I have been frequenting Holcomb Farm and The Garlic Farm to get the flavorful ingredients for wonderful tomato salads and vegetable dishes.

A year in review, with pie and ice cream, too

The Friends of Holcomb Farm celebrated at its Annual Members’ meeting with a ribbon cutting at the refurbished CSA barn, a pie contest, ice cream and reports of another successful year for the nonprofit. With a mission to protect Tudor and Laura Holcomb’s gift of this farm to the Town of Granby, the board reported on successful farming programs, growing Fresh Access partnerships to provide fresh produce to people otherwise without access, and ongoing land stewardship to provide greater public access to the meadows and trails.

Friends of Holcomb Farm

With the support of a State of Connecticut Small Farm Viability Grant, funds raised by the Friends of Holcomb Farm, and—most critically—hundreds of hours of volunteer time, renovation of the CSA Barn is well underway and on schedule for completion in advance of the annual opening of the Holcomb Farm CSA and Farm Store.
