Holcomb Farm’s CSA members, Farm Store customers, restaurants who source fresh produce from us, and organizations that benefit from the donor-supported Fresh Access food program, have all seen what a wet spring and consistent, professional farm-management can do: fill the fields with fresh, local food that we will be harvesting right through October.
Metro Bis Executive Chef Chris Prosperi will conduct a cooking demonstration at the Farm on Saturday, June 29, at 2 p.m.. You’ve probably seen Chris on TV—a magician in the kitchen, he also is an excellent teacher and an all-around great guy, and he’s a wonderful friend to Holcomb Farm.
Do you like to eat fresh, local food, expertly prepared by a local chef? Do you like buying exciting, one-of-a-kind items? Do you like knowing that your money will help ensure that others, less fortunate than you, are able to eat fresh, local produce?
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.
