Friends of Holcomb Farm

Friends of Holcomb Farm volunteers have been busy all year expanding the Holcomb Tree Trail and enhancing the miles of trails throughout our woodlands; and the community has noticed.

Friends of Holcomb Farm

If you Google “farming in November,” you will find lots of interesting descriptors: a time of transitions, a time for gleaning, a time to take stock. At Holcomb Farm, our strategic focus on “growing the growing season” means that while the last CSA summer share has been distributed, and the retail farm store has closed for the year, the farming continues.

Help us provide food to families in need

November is typically when we hold our annual Harvest Dinner and Silent Auction, our single largest fundraiser in support of Fresh Access, through which Holcomb Farm grows and distributes produce to people in need in Granby and the greater Hartford Region. But, of course, there is nothing typical about 2020: so, no Harvest Dinner fundraiser this year.

Sign up now for next summer

The Summer 2020 CSA shares sold out incredibly quickly and we know our customers are anxious to reserve their shares for next summer, so we have opened our online sales earlier than usual: Oct. 1 via the website (holcombfarm.org).
