About Colby Farmstand

Colby Farmstand is an ideal place to shop if you want very fresh and deliciously ripe, locally grown produce. The 350 acres surrounding the farmstand are hayfields, as the soil is mostly clay, but we farm about 20 acres of our nearby land (if you're trying to visualize, that's about the size of 18 football fields side-by-side) for vegetables and herbs. At harvest time, those twenty acres yield a big array of beautiful, healthy produce that we promise will taste better than what you'll find at the area supermarkets and warehouse stores in season.


You can buy much more than just vegetables and flowers at our farmstand. We offer a big variety

of locally source goods. In 2012, we

built a new farmstand near the very little

rustic, side-of-the-road farmstand we've

had for the last 20 or so years. We might

have more leg room, and extra shelf

space to offer you the ability to stop in

and buy everything you'd need to make

breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert for

the day, but Colby Farmstand is the same

honest, friendly, family run business it's

been since 1960.


Since the Colby Farmstand is only a few minutes from Route 95, Route 1 and 1A, it's easy to get to. So, next time you're in the neighborhood, pull on in to the farmstand. We're proud of the place and think you'll like it too.


You'll find lots of useful information on our website, but don't hesitate to ask us questions about anything we sell. When you spend 16 hours a day farming you learn a thing or two food.


We hope to see you soon!

Colby Farm began operating in 1960, with 1st generation farmer, William Colby who grew up in Newburyport. Today, William and his wife, Lisa run the farm with help from their son J.R. Colby and his wife, Elizabeth Knight.


The farmland consists of 350 acres of hay and 20 acres of vegetables in Newbury, Massachusetts.


We have 20 adult breeding stock hogs here at the farm and we raise about 60 market hogs each year for our farmstand pork sales. We have several different breeds including Berkshire, Yorkshire, Duroc, and Landrace hogs.
