Tree Trail growing, and open to all

The Friends of Holcomb Farm Stewardship committee and volunteers have been maintaining trails and planting trees as our Tree Trail, launched in 2019, really begins to take shape. In addition to planting new trees, they have been freeing older trees, like apple trees, that were almost lost to overgrowth and invasives.

Victory Farming in Granby

This spring, the greenhouses full of seedlings and the freshly turned soil of the Salmon Brook flood plains at Holcomb Farm are providing a sense of normalcy in these unsettled times. Just as people turned to growing their own victory gardens in times of war, our community is counting on Granby’s own farm, under the stewardship of the Friends of Holcomb Farm—along with the whole local farming community—to fill tables with fresh produce.

Welcome to spring

With the caveat that we write this update in mid-March, at the start of Covid-19-related social distancing efforts that may result in postponements and cancellations of noted events, here’s what’s happening at Holcomb Farm.

Summer’s bounty, and winter shares abundant, too

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.

News and Activities

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.
