Our Story

The Ashby Grove

On behalf of the Steckbeck family, we welcome you to The Ashby Grove. We are happy you are considering our farm for your agritourism experience amongst all of the great farms in New England.  We bought this 24-acre hilly part of northern Massachusetts in May of 2020 with different original plans - plans to provide food to restaurants.  Well after the Covid-19 pandemic, we had to go back to the drawing board.  After many late nights and hallway paces we decided to build a large beautiful horticulture farm and focus on Christmas trees, apples and agritourism.  The Ashby Grove was then born. 

So, we have been clearing land for our Christmas tree plantation and our engineering firm is doing the site design in 2021.  Excavation is expected to begin in the summer and our post and beam housebarn is expected to be delivered in the fall of 2021.  Our property will be physically secure; therefore, we are installing a custom-built motorized cantilever front gate with keypad access with a perimeter fence lined with Christmas trees.
We are accepting reservations now for farm experiences starting in summer of 2022. Follow us on Facebook to get the latest updates on our progress, as we will be posting pictures, videos and exciting information! Thank You Again for choosing The Ashby Grove for your authentic farm experience!

Warm Regards,
