Spring springs eternal

The seed order is in and the Summer CSA shares are almost sold out (some still available at holcombfarm.org/join-our-csa). Plans for a full “Season of Celebrations” for the 30th anniversary of the Friends of Holcomb Farm, are well underway.

Friends of Holcomb Farm

You may think things are quiet at Holcomb Farm in the winter months, but you would be wrong. While the fields rest under the ice and snow, our farm crew is busy harvesting and distributing the winter crop.

One of the Friends’ strategic goals is to “grow the growing season,” and in New England that means greenhouses aka hoophouses. In February 2019, Mother Nature decided to challenge that goal with 70 mph winds, which took down what was then our beloved Greenhouse #6 (GH6), home to our best chemical-free spinach.
