Farm store to stay open through October 31

Our Farm Store, located at 111 Simsbury Road, will be open to the public through Oct. 31, selling our own produce (grown without chemicals or pesticides), as well as offerings from the larger ag community and other locally sourced items.

Getting fresh produce—and other things—without leaving your house

When the pandemic hit, Michelle Niedermeyer knew she couldn’t host the annual seasonal farmers’ markets at Lost Acres Vineyard, so she and the Granby Agricultural Commission came up with a plan that makes it possible for residents of Granby, East Granby, East Hartland and Simsbury to obtain vegetables, cheese, wine and specialty meats without leaving their homes: the Virtual Farmers’ Market.

Emma gets her chickens

Emma Hoyt, the partner of Holcomb Farm’s Farmer Joe O’Grady, has always had a fondness for chickens. She brought two of her own to Granby when the couple moved into the farmhouse on Simsbury Road.

Winter CSA shares available soon

Winter shares should be available for on-line purchase via our website in September. New England storage crops—beets, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, rutabaga, and more—get sweeter over time.
