Norwich Recreation and the Norwich Historical Society is working together on a Farm to Feast fundraiser, combining our bike tour program (with Jane LeMasurier) with the NHS podcast program.  Participants will either ride bikes to collect brunch items at area farms, or drive cars to collect dinner items at the same farms.  We have agreements with Sweetland, Honey Field and Hogwash farms, as well as King Arthur Flour and the Norwich Inn.  We will work with our suppliers from Norwich Nailed It to supplement the farm items as needed.   Currently, we are working on the menu and pricing, with a plan to open registration in April.
