Colfax Farm's Story
Colfax Farm, located in the southern Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, is owned and operated by Molly Comstock.
We grow organic vegetables, herbs, flowers and berries on approximately three acres of leased land in Alford, MA.
Molly spent ten years as a nomadic farmer, managing farms
and growing food throughout the Hudson Valley and Berkshire regions. There have been many beautiful places provided by caring, generous folks that Colfax Farm has called home.
In 2018, the farm moved to an amazing location which we hope to
call home for many years to come. Through the generous offer of Ray Wilcox of Twin Oaks Farm, we now operate on farmland that has been in his family for three generations. As Molly farms in honor of her parents' memory, she is thrilled to be able to continue to steward this farmland that has been so well cared for by another family’s dedication.
Our Farm Practices
All produce is grown organically, without the use of harmful pesticides or herbicides. We use no-till growing practices, meaning we use no large-scale, fossil-fuel powered equipment for tillage or cultivation. We try to disturb the soil as little as possible, using hand tools and tarps to reduce compaction and encourage healthy soil life. We believe a robust and healthy soil truly "feeds" the plants, and in turn, the people.
At Colfax Farm, our focus is on creating community and connection for our members and customers. We strive to be an integral part of our community, and foster an environment where people can develop a real relationship with their neighbors, their food, the land it is grown on, and the farmers who work to feed them.
