A few times each growing season, our farmer provides an opportunity to purchase a variety of additional products that are not part of our weekly delivery. These items include things like honey, granola, jams, tomato sauce, and meats. The products are either produced at Norwich Meadows Farm, or from one of their local partners in the region. All products are produced organically and animals are treated humanely, and slaughtered according to halal and kosher traditions.
