Elba is a charming community in Genesee County, New York in which friendliness, hard work, and community pride flourish.  We are a picturesque town of multi-generational families, churches, fine sports teams, family farms and outstanding local artists. 

Rich in history and agriculture, The Town of Elba is home to two of the nation’s top 100 farms as well as one of America’s most highly praised “community-supported agriculture” organic farms.  In addition, several family dairy farms are located within our town.  

Our 2500 acres of rich muckland soil yields a bounty of crops, most notably onions, earning Elba the title of “Onion Capital of the World.” 

Located six miles north of Batavia, Elba has its own K-12 school, which is a source of pride and community spirit.  

Elba is a friendly and close-knit place.  Life here proceeds at a more human pace than in the cities and suburbs; people know each other and look out for one another.  We welcome you, either as a visitor or a new neighbor! 

The Daily News is the official paper where all of the town’s legal ads are published.
