2016 - farm to fork dinner
Thanks to everyone who attended last night's 3rd Annual Evening at Norwell Farms! Once again with your support we were able to sell out tickets to this event! What makes this event so special each year is that it is a true celebration of Norwell Farms: we are at the farm, eating vegetables grown right there, alongside the people who support what we are doing. It is a truly magical night at the historic Jacobs property! The non-profit arm of Norwell Farms has grown by leaps and bounds this past year and without this event and your support, the non-profit could not exist!
