Granby is a nature lovers paradise with over 400 acres of public hiking and walking trails

Granby was once part of Simsbury until it became incorporated in 1723. With close proximity to Bradley International Airport, Granby makes travel a breeze. In 2009 Connecticut Magazine ranked Granby as the #3 overall small town to live in and the #1 small town in Hartford County. Granby is home to the Dewey-Granby Oak, a white oak tree estimated to be upwards of 500 years old and thought to be one of the oldest trees in New England. The Dewey-Granby Oak is depicted on the town seal.

Granby Memorial High School has received numerous academic achievements; in 2008 the school was ranked 14th out of 125 Connecticut schools. Hartford Magazine once ranked GMHS as 4th among top schools for Harford County, and in 2006 the school was the first to be awarded the status of Connecticut Vanguard School as a result of its excellent academic performance.

A nature lover’s paradise can be found here in town with over 400 acres of public hiking and walking trails through the Granby Land Trust. Enders State Forest has hiking, birdwatching and beautiful waterfalls, and 3,200 acres of wild land, streams and abandoned farms are found at McLean Game Refuge, a preserve started by Senator McLean, who hunted, fished and hiked the land as a reprieve from his career. He shared this land with Presidents Coolidge, Taft and Hoover. Rails-to-trails also passes through Granby.

Granby is home to many equestrian centers, dairy and goat farms, as well as vegetable and fruits farms that offer Community Shared Agricultural Programs throughout the summer and even winter months. When is the best time to visit these farms? Granby Open Farm Day hosted in September offers a glimpse behind the scenes at roughly a dozen farms. You can see the fields the crops are grown in as well as the facilities where local milk is pasteurized and cheeses are made. If you like wine, you’re in luck with Lost Acres Vineyard, a boutique vineyard and winery. Lost Acres Vineyard even has a wine Community Shared Agricultural Program.
